220D Neutral Safety Switch

Hi all

I have a '69 220D with column shift automatic. I need to replace my Neutral Safety switch, as I traced my inop backup lights to it. However, to get the switch off the shift linkage needs to come out of the transmission. I cannot figure out how I am supposed to get that shaft off, there is no bolt or nut on it, it just goes in through the switch and disappears. Does anyone know how that comes off?

Thanks
-Dan

I'm not sure if the 1969 is a bit different from the later models of the 1970s, but there the shaft can stay put, you just need to remove the lever, it has one securing bolt at the bottom. It goes through at the red dots in the picture below. Take the bolt out and remove the lever. Than remove the two bolts which hold the NSS (near the blue dots).



And than you have this:

My setup is different than that. The lever is attached to the shaft and there is no bolt holding it on, and I cannot see any type of clip.

Interesting, I don't think the whole shaft has to come out, there must be some screw. The part picture in the EPC suggests that it is behind the NSS.

I have been messing with this all day. There is no screw holding the lever to shaft, it is all one piece. I looked in the EPC and the lever/shaft combo they have listed looks different than mine. Is it hooked inside the transmission?????

Here is some more info

Can you knock the lever from the axle? It seems to be two seperate pieces. Perhaps heat the lever so it expands?

The transmission number means it is a 722.107 transmission. Early 220Ds had 722.206 transmission.
