Question Small oil leak around oil pressure sensor - help

I took my CL-S in for an oil change (Mobil 1 Syn) and tire rotation yesterday and in the "Comments" section of the "Acura Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection Checklist", the tech noted:

"has a small oil leak around oil pressure sensor"

First of all, where is the oil pressure sensor? And what could be causing the leak - any common problems in/around this area that you know of?

The sensor is #17, located on the oil filter housing. Theres an o-ring on it:

#29, part number 91319-PR3-003, lists for $2.50. Isn't difficult to install but you may get some oil leaking out when you pull out the sensor. Its possible its the o-ring from the solenoid (#15) too.

Perfect, thank you! Is this relatively easy to get to and replace both o-rings on my own, I hope?? I know my way around my Miata and Focus (ZETEC) engine but the CL has been such an easy car to maintain, I am not as familiar under the hood .

#16 is the oil pressure sensor, #17 is the vtec oil pressure sensor. There are no o-rings on 16, it's tapered pipe thread. Fairly common source of oil leakage,

So I just need to replace #16 then due to the oil leak?
