Most oil pressure sensors are located near the oil filter. I believe that the oil filter is easily accessible on this engine. Search near the oil filter to find the switch. Once the switch is located, unplug the switch and use a socket to remove the switch from the engine block. The installation should be reverse of removal. If you are in doubt about this repair, consider YourMechanic as oil pressure sensors can be replaced at your home or office by a certified professional.
