It can be done but it requires knowledge about how a 3way is wired to convert it to a regular switch. It would involve testing live wires to determine where power starts at. You can't just replace one switch.

What 6 things do you need to make a torch?

to make a torch you need batteries (obviously), a switch (you can buy a standard switch or make a pressure switch out of foil and cardboard), a light bulb, wires (3 if you are using any kind of switch) and a housing (something to hold the batteries, wires, light bulb etc. together). I would also recommend using a light bulb holder and wires with alligator clips (if you dont have solder) as these make the construction more sturdy. they may increase bulk but they are worth it especially as it is easy to replace the bulb and there is no solder needed therefore nothing has to be broken to replace anything.

Backup light switches are different between automatic and manual transmission bmws. If you have the automatic the switch is under the shifter. Disconnect the battery and remove the shifter boot. Unplug the switch wires and replace the switch and reconnect the wires and battery. If you have a manual transmission the switch is on the passenger side of the transmission above the Allen type filler plug. Disconnect the battery, unplug the wires and unscrew the switch with a 19mm wrench. Screw in the new one an torque it down then reconnect the wires and the battery.
