Default Anyone know what this wire/sensor is? (2005 MT Roadster)

Pulling down my boost piping to finally replace my toasted clutch. And came across this....





Its on the passanger side and wraps around the transmission to what looks like a sensor on the driver side by the driveshaft. Speed sensor? Neutral safety switch? Anyone know what this is?

Looks like the exhaust pipe of off the turbo BBQ’d the sh** out of it. Looks like it has 3 fried wires and one is actually broken. The other two are still in tact but barely.

This also serves as a warning for other boosted perf turbo kit owners to watch these wires. Looks like the stock mount location for these wires is right up against our dump pipes off the turbo hot side. Yours is probably cooking as well!

CK,

The switch on the driver side is the reverse switch. The neutral switch is on the passenger side.

likely neutral position, two wire, driver side, hops over the trans to the reverse position sensor then zips up to the main harness...

can you take a picture of the harness connector?

Since we have a disagreement as to which switch is on which side, here's a page from the Service Manual.
