Back up light switch adjustment horse shoe shifter

Anyone know if there is an adjustment to this switch? I see the switch with the pink wire.

My back up lights come on in reverse AND neutral sometimes. The switch needs to be moved farther foward?

Any pics would be great.

Thank you in advance.

Loosen the two screws on the side of the switch body and rotate the body to satisfy all needs; tighten screws.

Re: Back up light switch adjustment horse shoe shifter

Thanks. I see one screw towards the front of the switch and one to the rear. On the sides are bolts holding the horse shoe shifter?

I assume you mean the screws?

Thanks so much.

PS, I give. How do you angle anything on that rear screw? PB blastered and am sleeping while it soaks.

Yes..."screws on the switch body", not the shifter.

Just be sure to take a look at the shifter alignment with the detent plate. It may be that your shifter cable isn't adjusted correctly. Put the transmission in neutral and make sure the shifter aligns with the neutral detent. If that looks good, commense adjusting the switch.

Re: Back up light switch adjustment horse shoe shifter

Got it. Small socket swivel bought today did the trick plus some pb blaster overnight.

Works good now.

Thanks guys. You saved me a week of trial and error.
