I'm assuming this is on a 1.2 Corsa? It's a common problem. It's very easy to do - make sure the engine is cold as it's near the manifold and you could burn yourself. Disconnect the electrical connector and remove the pressure switch - I think you need a 24mm spanner. Screw in new pressure switch (being careful not to cross thread it) and reconnect electrical connector. Top up oil if it's lost some from the leak.

I can't believe how easy this was to replace. I was proper impressed with myself. Being a female at that..
