Well, got dizzy looking at it with the maggie so we decided to just slide the maggie forward by a few inches. Worked like a charm and probably quicker than dremel/facia removal. Unbolt maggie, take out intake tube, unplug sensors, unplug injectors and slide forward. No need to remove coolant hoses. About an hour and a bit total.
I was going to say the same thing, that it seemed to be a disproportionate number of the maggie folks. But maybe they make all the threads because it's so much harder to get to it with the blower in place.

Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure
So just the sensor sender going is a common problem? I got in mine today after driving it 15 minutes prior and it said oil pressure 0 stop engine. I bugged out. Pulled the filler neck out of the valve cover and didnt see any oil flow and thought the worst towed it home. There is deff a strange tick coming from the engine now so Im not 100% on it being the sensor but well see.
I did it today! I was tired to have the Oil Pressure reading out of wack and have the "Service Engine Soon" popin up on the NAV.
Got a BWD (Made in Mexico) oil pressure sender for $69 at Partsouce. Brass fitting and seems and feel better quality than the OEM I pulled out. I also bought the socket for $11. In Ontario Canada, we need to add another $10.40 or 13% (Harmonized Sales Tax) or HST. I have a few other names for this one. Yes, I did remove the windshield washer motor trim. Took me around 15 minutes. All looks good now!
Thanks for this thread! It made me come to conclusion and fix it myself.
