93 960 PNP Done

Just finished replacing he PNP/Neutral safety switch on teh '93 906-
the switch that makes the little arrow flash and keeps the car from
running/starting/ etc. What a rediculous placement and design. I was
able to get botht he bolt and nut off without problem and actually was
able to do the entire job with the exhaust in place (thank goodness).
But the tranny cooling line was the problem. I was able to get the
compression nut loose, but it would opnly turn about two turns smothly
and then stop. I used penetrating oil, and I removed the retaining
clips that hold the two lines together, and I wiggled and jiggled the
line, but could not get the nut off. I was afraid that it is broke or
stripped it would mean a tow to town (over 25 miles) and no car for
days (not good living in wildfire country this time of year to be
without a vehicle). I finally just loosened it as far as I safely
could, loosened the jam nut on the tranny side of the fitting, held
the line aside as far as I could lever it safely, and then was able to
"Tetris" the switch out. The new one pretty much "Tetris'd" back in
without incident.

The adjustment procedures I have read were not much help. I moved the
switch through its adjustment range and could nbot get the R lights to
go off whether in R or in P so I just centered it and left it there.
Seems OK- all gears work, R lights work, etc. I could not see the
switch well enough to visually line up the shaft with the alignment

Anyway, I have done worse jobs, but it was a workout. BTW- got the
genuine Volvo switch from FCP Groton for $100 shipped.
