Unhappy oil pressure switch faulty!

The light of my oil level comes on after driving for about 1 hour. When I check the oil it is fine!!! This has happened for about 2 weeks on and off now...

I think the oil switch is faulty as the oil is always ok!

Please advise if it is possible to change the switch on my own?

Is it correct that the switch is located on the head in the middle?

The oil level sensor switch is located on the side of the oil pan. Mine is on the driver side. It is fairly large. The sensors on the top of the head are all in the water jacket.
