Congratulations on getting a C900 and welcome to SAABnet. These cars are loads of fun to drive and relatively easy to work on. Be prepared to get greasy.
When you've got the console disassembled, look at the nose end of the shifter assembly. With the accordion filler piece removed you should be able to see the shift rod. When you move the lever from side to side, the shift rod should rotate. If the shift rod moves from side to side when you move the shift lever, it also needs the rubber bushing at the nose of the shifter assembly. Let us know if you find that condition and we'll talk you through how to fix that. It's a little more involved than the shifter adjustment.
Get yourself a decent set of Torx bits that can be put on a 1/4" drive ratchet. You'll use them a lot with a C900.
FWIW, my convertible was hard to get into 5th and reverse. One day, I noticed exactly what you did - backup lights in 5th and not in reverse. Kind of disturbing to drivers who tend to follow too closely on the highway. Adjusted the shifter per Townsend and the backup lights now act just they're supposed to.
