I'm new to Volvo's and have only had my 1996 850 wagon (base model, 5-speed) for a few days. I just noticed that the reverse lights don't illuminate unless I hold the shifter all the way into reverse. Is the switch in question buried to the point of not being worth adjusting? So far, this, and a locked rear seat belt (now fixed) are the only quirks I've experienced with my new ride and I'm very impressed with the amount of car $4500 buys.<p>-Glen

Re: (doug242ti)

After digging thru the pdfs, I've learned that the back-up light switch is located on the transaxle. There aren't any illustrations indicating exactly where, but that's deeper into the guts than I'm interested in digging.
