Replacement of oil pressure sensor on 2005 Vortex engine

I would really appreciate a step by step on the replacement of the ol pressure sending unit on my 2005 Chevy Silverado with the HO Vortex motor. I thought the gauge had gone bad--replaced that--still bad! thanks,

From GM service manual:
1. Remove engine sight shield.
2. Disconnect the oil pressure sensor electrical connector.
3. Using a special socket (when I did mine I bought one from NAPA) remove the oil pressure sensor.

Install the sensor and torque to 15 ft.lbs. Plug the electrical connector into the sensor, and reinstall the sight shield.
