Reverse lights intermittent- 03 TJ 5 sp

Sometimes my back up lights work and sometimes they do not.
Must be a dirty contact or something. I looked for some kind of write up and in the FAQ's but haven't found anything here on the forum.
Anyone point me to a diagram or pictures of maybe the switch for the back up lights around the transmission I can hopefully clean the contacts or replace, thanks much.

Just did the switch on mine last week, it's on the drivers side kind of in line with the fill plug toward the rear. Has a two prong plug on it.

You may be able to clean it but a new one is under $15.

Need to res erect this thread.
The problem is not the switch. I pulled the reverse lights switch out and pressed on the plunger and the lights go on.
Where can I get a diagram of what is inside the transmission that moves that plunger ?
And...happy christmas.
