How to get at and replace 1993 Mazda Navajo backup light switch has 5 spd manual transmission?

The backup light switch is located near the top and on the driver's side of the transmission. Disconnect the wire to the switch connector and unscrew and replace the switch. These switches seem to be expensive from the Ford dealership, but may be cheaper from NAPA or other aftermarket auto supplier. The task takes a little more than 15 minutes, but be sure that you take good safety precautions while under the vehicle. EJ
