Hi mate, from memory the oil pressure switch screws into the top of the oil filter housing. These engines can suffer with blocked oil pick ups, may be well worth the time to drop the sump and replace the pick up pipe. Removing the sump is fairly stright forward on the 1.8t.

No need to break the door cards, pulling the rear seat up should allow you access to that one, front door is secured by 2 screws in the handle and 2 torx bolts that screw into the bottom of the door pocket. Sliding the passenger seat fwd and right back should allow access needed to remove them.

Thanks...I'll try switch first...and the cards...well I'm sure if I damage them I'll be able to get a set somewhere..I hope it's the switch...if it's the pick up pipe then itll be next on the list...
