Yes, but remember that part is used - just like the one you are replacing. New is always better. Especially with upgrades in wiring.

How do you change a neutral safety swicth on a ford e350?

The neutral safety switch is located on the transmission shift lever. Its held onto the transmission case by 2 bolts in slotted holes. You will need to remove the kick down lever. The switch will slip off the shift lever with just a little pry if dirty. Replace the switch while the transmission is in neutral. There is a small hole in the side of the switch to stick a small pin or awl into to locate the neutral position of the switch. I would try to adjust the old switch before replacing it.

Park the vehicle in an area where you can go forward without hitting something. Place gearshift in 2nd gear. Do not push the clutch in and try to start the engine. If it starts and lunges forward the safety switch is defective.
