96 Legacy OB 5M reverse lights don't work
Posted 05 April 2004 - 04:18 PM
I noticed my reverse lights don't work. If I wiggle the gear shift (manual) I will get a flicker every so often, but now this method seems to be failing as well. Is the reverse light switch a bear to get to? where is it? how do i get to it?
p.s. anyone know of an auto parts paint that matches the gray outback trim?

Also, it may be coincidental to the above, but I noticed a brake light out one day. It wasn't really until after that when I noticed the backup lights working again. Perhaps the bad brake light altered the circuit? Not really sure.
But, if you need to change it, my research from the experience indicates gbhrps is correct. Left side of the transmission, plug with a wire coming out. They're about $25-$30 online. Unhook cable, unscrew switch, reverse with new. Might need to put it up on ramps or jackstands. it's a tight fit under there.
