Default 1995 S6 oil temp switch


Hi All,
I just picked a 1995 S6 and the oil temp gauge is not working. Does anyone have an engine schematic?
Where is it located and is it a pain in the butt to replace?

The oil temp gauge on my 95 S6 also doesn't move. But mine is because of a stuck gauge. I'm not sure why it does this but after driving long enough to get the engine and oil up to temp I have to hit the area close to the gauge and shock it enough to finally get the gauge needle to move and start registering the correct temp. You might want to try this to see if your car is doing what mine does before purchasing a new sensor.

Must be a more common problem than I thought.
Thanks for letting me know.
