there ya go

Oh, and that sender was a B*TCH to get off, it'* not very accessible from the tire well. Remember to remove the cover between the tire and the engine gently, it might cause you some problems down the road.

Did you loose allot of oil when you removed the old one? Thru the fender well, can you tell me where it might be? I am doing a harmonic balancer tonight and will be right in there......

Ok..let'* clear this up.

You may lose 2 or 3 drops of oil that are on the sender.. the oil should be in the pan and this should be done when the motor isn't running

As for the splash shield..it'* easy and you can't hurt it easily unless it'* -20F and you try using a hammer to remove it. I suggest a trim panel tool or screwdriver and needlenose pliers.

On the pressure sender replacement itself. It'* easy to get at in this position.. tough would be trying to get it from around the transmission if you were under the car. (IMO I rate this the same or easier than changing our rear spark plugs.)

Well in that case, it seems pretty easy to me, I just did plugs, and on my L27 they were easy. Thanks for the info.

I have done a couple ..

Once tire and shield are off.. reach in..unhook electrical connector. Using pliers.. unscrew old one. Wipe area.. Insert new..tighten back down with pliers and rehook connector. And you can see it.
