Don't bother with a used one. Cyclemax keeps them in stock, brand new, for $14, because they are a common failure item:

You need to remove the left inner cowl (and the reverse lever) to get to it, you can see how to do this partway down this page: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=11036

Once the left inner cowl is removed, the switch can be removed with a single screw:

Like I said, use the link above from Cyclemax, they keep them in stock, and likely cheaper than your dealer will sell it.
