I'm having a problem starting my '97, and suspect the clutch switch (have changed the starter relay, starter motor, and starter solenoid).

I was wondering:

1. How is the switch installed over the clutch shaft? I'm considering purchasing a new switch, but am also considering a bypass. If possible I'd like to take the switch off and test it.

2. How is the linkage attached to the pedal? I haven't actually gotten my eyeballs on this, but after feeling it there doesn't appear to be any "positive retention" to hold the linkage onto the shaft. As a matter of fact, after fiddling with the switch a couple of times I inadvertently knocked the link off the pedal(!).

Any info would be most appreciated.
