Anybody else have trouble with the neutral sense switch on a 2.3 Liter 5 speed? The switch takes 24 mm socket but the wires are attached, so it's like an oxygen sensor. But O2 sensors are 7/8 hex, socket won't fit. I cut the wires on the old switch to remove it, then did the best I could with channel locks on the new switch.

Also found out, when you swap the switch, you need to keep track of the copper washer that goes between the switch and the trans. Without the washer, the switch sets up in the wrong position and will never open. Also the fluid leaks out. I ended up buying a 15/16 socket and cutting it.
