Default Low oil pressure at idle

Hi, apologies if in the wrong section, but here goes.

Bought a 307 2 days ago. All was good until half way home when the low oil pressure warning comes on everytime i stop.

Replaced the pressure switch, no good. Do i have to drain the oil before i inspect the filter? Will it P*ss oil out if i don't?

Bricking it incase i have bought a lemon at this stage!

Thanks in advance!

No to draining the oil to change the filter. Just let it cool down a bit if you have just run it. Better still to do it when cold. Don't forget to oil the O ring on the filter and hand tight only but not a limp hand, as tight as you can get it.
You have a 3 month warranty if you have proof of purchase by law unless you accepted sold as seen and even then that is still challengeable if you asked him/her were there any faults known. If I were you I would take it back to them and see what there response is before starting to pay out more cash.

Thanks for the reply. Took the filter out, there is no spigot? Should there be? Just a cylinder filter and the spring was under neath the filter, should it be on top?

Having the exact same issue with same car but 2007 bought from dealership. So far they have changed the sensor, replaced lol filter twice and now they have ordered a modified sensor. Back in on Tuesday to try again.

Default 307 1.6HDi

sorry this is a long one. I have the same problem with my 307 diesel. engine was recently overhauled and bearings where checked and ok, all seals replaced, oil filter housing checked and ok with new filter, oil suction pipe is clear of debris and you can see the oil churning in the engine when the oil filler cap is off. This only happens at idle and not when engine runs up. Oil used was 5-30w so used 10-30. Oil pressure sensor has been changed to no effect. What I do have is a slight leak when warmed up from the crankshaft side because I never changed that seal because it looked ok (someting I am now regretting). another replacement oil filter to no effect.
If I start the engine with a little bit of rev's the oil pressure light does not come on, only when it idles. If you rev up the warning stops but comes back on as soon as it goes back to Idle.
Does anyone have any idea ?
It does look like I will have to pull the engine out again to repalce the crankshaft seal so any thoughts of what could be causing this fault will be much appreciated.
I will post updates solved or not
cheers
