Hi everybody,

I've got an oil leak on my 99 400 which I believe to be coming from the neutral switch. I bought a new o-ring for it but can't find anywhere in my manual whether or not i can just pull the switch right out. any help will be appreciated.

Yes you can, but under the switch is a small brass pin and a spring. The spring fits on the pin, and the pin sits in a hole in the end of the shift cam. I tell you this because these two parts have a way of disappearing unnoticed, and then the neutral switch no longer works.
