Power Steering pressure switch shenanigans!

Dad Borrowed My focus and returned saying it’s “making a weird noise”

Turns out the Power steering pressure switch decided leak all its fluid!

Cheap ish part if you go no name but ford still sell NOS sensors!

Its Ford P/N 1076647

Only needs a 19mm spanner to take off and in the case of my 1.6L its on the rear of the engine next to the exhaust.

Guess what I’ve had to do on mine! The way they fail is there is a small diaphragm inside the switch, this is what fails and it leaks through a little hole between the two connection points, unsure why but big design flaw.
