ok i have a 2002 mini cooper s with a 6 speed manual transmission, i just replaced the clutch myself and didnt recognise a sensor on the top of the tranny and broke it its below where the shift cables go and it just bolts in.. i'v searched everywhere to figure it out but cant any ideas to what it is? it kinda looks like a pressure sensor of some sort
Sensor on the tranny could be a speed sensor. Does the speedometer work?
i dont know havent got it put all the way back together but it bolts on over the gears in the tranny if i start the car it sprays out gear oil
I said speed sensor because you said it was on the transmission. There's not much else on a manual transmission. Could it be a oil pressure sensor for the engine?
no thats not it i looked it up i have never seen anything like it in my life but it bolts on to the tranny and will spray gear oil if i start the car
It could be the reverse lamp switch. Go to RockAuto.com and see if it looks the same. 2002 MINI COOPER 1.6L L4 : Electrical-Switch & Relay : Back Up Lamp Switch
Neutral safety switch?
No neutral safety switch on a manual transmission. They use a switch under the clutch pedal instead.
agree with one of tenspeeds answers i think its the reverse lamp switch based on the location you described.
there isn't a backplate on the bellhousing? this isn't quite right~ you know you could look at the schematic for the function of these two wires~
