Clutch interlock switch

Can someone please describe where the clutch safety switch is on my '92 F-350. I'm guessing its under the dash but I'm not small and will have to locate it by feel before I figure out how to get to it.

Thanks for your consideration

It is in between the gas pedal and the brake pedal way up under the dash. It is a bear to get to as you already know. You might consider dropping your steering colomn to give your self more room and you should be able to see it if you do.

clutch interlock switch

I failed to mention that this is a manual transmission, however if it is where you say how is it actuated? It's mighty chilly here and need to plan every detail. A vehicle does'nt do well if it sits too long this time of year. Please elaborate on the function of the switch if you can.

thank you much

Ok the clutch master cylinder is to the right of the master cylinder and the clutch safty switch is mounted to the back of it. Its actually part of rod that pushes on the clutch master cylinder. It is not directly behind the clutch pedal as logic would suggest. Its to the right of the brake pedal up on the firewall.

Clutch interlock switch

You are absolutely right! It also looks to be alot of work to replace but an end of a large paper clip and 3" of electrical tape, and your expert reply got me out of a tough situation. It will get me through the winter with my giant thanks to you. Bread and milk are an 80 mile round trip..

Thanks again,
