Reverse light plug

Hi. I noticed that the reverse light plug has come unplugged and was hanging down under the car. I can only just get at the socket from beside the gear lever. Does this plug just push in? I did the best at full finger stretch but lights aren't working. Does the plug have to go in a certain way? Thanks in advance.

It should just push back on.  Polarity dose not matter so it can go either way.  Make sure terminals and the pins in the plug are clean.

As a test put a jumper wire in across the terminals in the plug "make sure ignition is on!" and reversing lights should come on if not no point fitting it until you find the problem.

if it's on the ford gear box I think its a straight switch wth a rubber friction fit - should just pushon

Thanks all. Looking at pictures of replacement switches it's clear the middle has dropped out of mine so I've ordered a new one. Hopefully problem solved then.

Luckily the old switch came out easily otherwise I would have been cutting a whole in the tunnel. It had fallen apart. New switch in and working.
