Oil pressure switch
#1
Is there a 'How to'on the forum for changing the oil pressure switch/sensor on my petrol 1.6?. It's a 2007 1587 cc model.

I've described the fault on another thread but have been unable to find any guide on here

Mnay thanks

Is it the oil pressure warning switch or the oil level sensor?
They are different.

It's the oil pressure switch. Car running fine but getting light below 1200 rpm.

I cant find a how to do it on the forum. a manual says the switch may be screwed into engine block beneath the oil filter assy. or scewed into the oil filter head assy. depending on the model. It may be easier to jack up at the front and take off the sump shield to gain access. If you can identify the switch then you can decide which way to go and if you can get a spanner onto it. It is a case of turning anti-clock to remove it and clockwise to fit. Its not a difficult job. The switch will have only one wire connected, disconnect before turning it . I'm assuming that the oil level will be correct.
