Does anyone know if the switch twist/pulls off? or do you have to unbolt the largish looking hex nut directly in front of the green plastic bit? can these be repaired or only replaced

Any help would be appreciated

I agree with other replys - but first thing first - which car do you drive (engine and age)

Replaced my gear box switch about 3 years ago - drained and replaced the oil to. This was on the J5R five speed box fitted to the 1.8 and 2.0 petrol engines.

You will need a 24mm socket to remove the switch and fit the new. All is accessible from under the engine once the undertray is off ( for me the difficult bit)
