How to remove the parts surrounding shift lever & lever itself to get to bottom

(1998 Lexus ES300)
in Honolulu, HI on November 16, 2011
How do I remove the parts on transsmission console by shift lever.
98 ES300 reverse light inop issue. The reverse light is not coming on because of a possible adjustment needed in the shift mechanism. But how do you remove the bottom series of parts to get to the linkage and reverse sensor after removing the wood panel, and how to remove the top portion of the short lever? (I partially removed the small cover on the back but couldn't remove completely. My reverse light comes on, but only after moving it slightly forward when in reverse. Look forward to your help; Thanks Bruce at:

Back up light switch is part of the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Bridge the red/black wire and red/blue wires and see if the lights come on with the key on if so wiring and bulbs are in tact.It's where the shift cable attaches to the front side of the transmission. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
