I have just got round to doing this. For what its worth I reckon the problem isn't with the switch, it is with the connector just like the yellow airbag one under the seat. Before buying a new switch I would try cleaning the connector with WD40 or similar.

Reversing Light Switch

No you will need to remove the Left hand front wheel, the switch is located on the back of the gearbox, you will need a 19mm combination spanner, I think. it's easy enough if your a competent home mechanic, I found the hardest part was removing the connector.

reverse light switch

Hi, I discovered my reversing lights were out and bulbs were okay so I sought advice here and it's been great in pointing me to the switch only to discover mine was completely disconnected. After a bit of groping around the area, I found the cable, connected it up and, hey presto, reversing lights came on. However, so does a continuous beep. I suspect now that the switch was disconnected when I bought the car to hide this (given other issues I had with the car). I noticed at the time that there were no working parking sensors despite seeming to have them fitted (visually) so could this be the fault...I assume sensors are meant to give out an intermittent beep? Would a new switch fix the issue? Will it cause a problem left as it is (e.g. blown fuses)?
Any/all advice gratefully accepted.

The reverse light switch is not the cause of the parking sensor fault, it simply gives the the power feed to the parking ecu, the most likely culprit will be a sensor fault or wiring fault to the sensor behind the bumper.
