    I had the same issue with my 2.2 DTi - the oil pressure light flickering at idle. The handbook says this is OK but I wasn't happy with it so decided to investigate...

    Around £13 at a dealer got me a genuine pressure sensor 90569684 and copper washer 11016282. The sensor requires a 24mm deep socket/spanner so I got this from B&Q so that I could torque it up properly.

    First get the car up ramps and remove the 10 Torx screws - 8 underneath and 1 in each wheelarch - to release the undertray. Look up the back of the engine under the turbo and locate the sensor. Release the clip and remove the wiring plug (single wire) and clean around the sensor before removing it using a deep socket or spanner.

    Fit the copper washer to the new sensor and screw it in by hand then tighten to 30Nm. Refit the wiring plug making sure it clips properly into place. Turn the ignition on and check the check the oil pressure warning light comes on and then start the engine and make sure it goes out and doesn't flicker at idle. Get back under the car and check there are no oil leaks from around the sensor (beware of moving parts and hot parts if the engine is running) then refit the undertray before checking the oil pressure light again.

    That's it all done. I did mine a week ago and the oil pressure light hasn't flickered yet, but I'm still keeping a very close eye on it...
