Oil pressure warning light switch - removal and refittingStarting and charging systems / Oil pressure warning light switch - removal and refitting
1 The switch is located at the front of the cylinder block, above the oil filter mounting.
Note that on some models access to the switch may be improved if the vehicle is jacked up and supported on axle stands so that the switch can be reached from underneath (see “Jacking and vehicle support”).
2 Disconnect the battery negative lead.
3 Remove the protective sleeve from the wiring plug (where applicable), then disconnect the wiring from the switch.
4 Unscrew the switch from the cylinder block, and recover the sealing washer. Be prepared for oil spillage, and if the switch is to be left removed from the engine for any length of time, plug the hole in the cylinder block.
5 Examine the sealing washer for signs of damage or deterioration and if necessary renew.
6 Refit the switch, complete with washer, and tighten it securely. Reconnect the wiring connector.
7 Lower the vehicle to the ground then check and, if necessary, top-up the engine oil as described in “Weekly checks”.
