5 Unscrew the sensor, and quickly plug the sump aperture to minimise oil loss; note the sensorТs seal.

6 Refitting is the reverse of the removal procedure; renew the sensorТs seal if it is worn or damaged, and tighten the sensor to the specified torque wrench setting. Check the engine oil level, and top-up as necessary (see Chapter 1) - check for signs of oil leaks once the engine has been restarted and warmed-up to normal operating temperature.
