Is that the thing that looks like a motor starter behind the clutch pedal? I've always wondered what that was there for - looks a bit like the foot-operated dim-dip switch we had on the old Ambys.

Here is the original quote:

The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations. David Friedman

It is my humble opinion that quotes should not be misquoted.

When sitting facing the engine (there is no other way huh, ) the switch is in front of the pedal. It is a normally open (NO) switch.

Okay then its not the one that I was talking about - I still wonder what that is for. Check your footwell and see if you can figure out what purpose that switch serves.

@ Murugan - that wasnt a quote, which is why the author is not mentioned. A quote has to be exact to the last detail. Now lets get back to the topic.

A photo of the switch and the looped circuit.
@Steer- The thingy you mentioned seems to be a stopper.

sir, its just a guess but i think its a protection switch which allow to switch in 4L only when clutch is pressed but again its just a guess.
