Oil Pressure Switch Leaking

Hello all,

This is my first post here at Mustang Evolution and assure you it wont be my last, since I mainly do all of my own work unless it is replacing suspension arms

Recently, my 2000 Mustang Convertible 3.8L had an oil gauge issue that fixed itself after about a week. I then noticed oil drips on my driveway prompting me to look under the hood. I couldn't find anything immediately so then proceeded to look under the car only to notice that there was a steady drip coming from above the oil filter. I inspected further and back to under the hood, noticed that my oil pressure switch connector is oozing oil out of it pretty steady while and after the car shuts off.

The switch and connector will be an easy fix if only I could reach the darned thing hehe . It is located behind the power steering pump .

I see no easy way to replace this issue with out removing the power steering... Is this correct? If so, is there an easy way to alter or slide the power steering pump out of the way?

I have released the serpentine belt and removed the 2 nuts that connect to the water pump and also one bolt that is connected to the alternator.. No luck on that..

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
