The oil pressure sensor on the 996 Turbo is on the top of the engine - right behind the oil filter.  Not easy to access, but possible.

Sorry :blush:

My mistake I just realized you have a 996TT - even though posted in the 996 section.

I will move this to the appropriate section.

You gotta move the oil filter housing and you'll be able to reach it.

I did this last weekend and removed the diverter valves instead of the oil filter housing to get to the oil pressure sending unit.

Not too bad a job if you lower the engine.
