You should be able to remove the rubber stopper on the clutch pedal that presses the switch when then pedal is not depressed. Removing it will allow the switch plunger to extend and close the switch all the time.

Then it will be like my 1970 and 1971 VWs are, from the era when folks had to remember to be in neutral or to press the clutch pedal down !!!


Or one could just solder the two leads to the switch together, and use shrink tubing.

it's just much nicer to be able to reach in the window and crank it or bump the ignition if you're under the hood.
I do agree however, having to think about being in neutral. i cant count the times i went to start my old truck in gear and startled myself when it jumped.

You can bypass the clutch switch without even going under the dash, just run a ground to the starter relay under the hood, all the clutch switch does when pressed is complete the ground circuit for the relay
