There are two oil sender switches on the 4 cylinder Passat. One is mounted low in the engine bay on top of the cast housing that the oil filter screws onto. A second one screws directly into the cylinder head, on the same side of the engine the gearbox mounts to. The sender switches both have different part numbers so don't get them mixed up.

i believe that the st has a 4afe (1.4l) engine. if that is the case the pressure sender is below the alternator and to the left of the oil filter. if it has a 3sfe (2.0l) the sender is on the drivers side of the cylinder head on the front.

The oil pressure switch and oil sender for older 454's are mounted on the lower left front of the engine block just above the oil pan.
