      The yellow wire goes to the high pressure switch (usually the black one). Normally, the low pressure switch is blue and takes the blue wire. See the picture in this thread.
      It shouldn't really matter which switch is screwed into which hole, but yes, the black switch is usually screwed into the left hole.

      Hey guys hows it going? My Oil Pressure sensor in Black color according to this diagram picture its the one located on the far left hand side ontop of the Metal square housing is Leaking. How much is this to replace and how hard is it to replace?

      Nice diagram. I was just wondering today what the torque spec was for the oil filter housing drain plug. Now I know.

      The switch is cheap, but difficult to get to.

      It's not difficult if you take off the front bumper cover and then remove the lock and carrier (front end bumper support, etc). Takes a total of 15 min to remove all of this. While you're in there, you should replace out the seal behind the oil filter housing as well as the oil cooler seals and coolant hoses. Then you can sit back and feel safe you won't have to take off the front end for quite some time.
