    What id do if i was you, little trick i learnt when my reverse switch knackered in my corsa.

    Look down the engine, to the right there should be a plug going into the gearbox. Unplug it, get abit of wire and join the 2 pins (Presumably) Check the reverse lights, if there on the reverse switch is knackered in the gearbox.

    There not much, nor hard to replce just bolt out.
