For anyone who has replaced the reverse speed sensor...

Need some help here… I've got everything removed to get at the sensor… removed the clip end just fine, but can't figure a way to get an allen wrench in the head of the bolt that holds the sensor in. The clearance to the frame is too tight… any suggestions? I'm thinking about sawing down a 5mm allen wrench as a last resort to shorten the business end.

Thanks!

That's what I did cut the allen off but be careful when you slide the sensor back in make sure the o-ring is good and slipper so it slides in so you do not break the o-ring before you get it in place You are talking about the sensor for your reverse that goes into the transmission right

Yep. Didn't know an o ring was in there, thanks… hoping I can find a solution besides cutting the allen wrench… but we'll see.
