Oil Pressure switch
« on: November 10, 2021, 05:57:19 pm »
Randomly scanning my 2007 GTi on 'Carly OBD' to check for 02 sensor issue and getting a code also of P0522 (Engine Oil Pressure Sensor).
No lights on dash regarding oil pressure or anything like that.

Ordered up an oem switch anyways just to replace it...looks like a nightmare to replace?

anyone done this themselves? any tips on doing it with out pulling the front of that car apart?

Cheers Lads!

Click on the pictures and they open up bigger on another tab.

I was going to say that it doesn't look too bad - Dont worry there are much worse jobs around the engine!
