Default Reversing sensor

When i bought my V8 recently i noticed that the reversing lights dont work and i dont get that bleep when i put it in reverse gear. I remember changing the switch on my V6 but is the switch easy to find on the V8? I assume it must be situated between clutch and gearbox and is the switch the same as the V6 one? Cheers Mark.

Yeah I've just had a look at Rock Autos website. Cant seem to find anything on there, their website seems a bit confusing.
