Oil Sensor Leak

Yeah, I know it's an old thread, but ...
Bottom front passenger side of the oil pan, behind the power steering pump. There's a wire coming from above, and it plugs up into a small rubber boot.
I seemingly dropped my oil filter onto it *just now*, and pulled the wire out.
Now it leaks, and my oil light doesn't work.
*sigh*
Does anybody know if this is a bolt on type of thing? Will I have to drop the pan?
It just might have to be a JBWeld situation..

So, it took a few moments on realoem.
Three 6mm screws will drop the unit, along with some oil.
There's an Oring that could possibly leak. After a decade (or two (or more)) it should not be reused.
At this time mine has a metal screw into the wire hole, as the sending unit would take a few weeks and @ $150.
It'll wait until my next trip to the outdoor secondhand parts emporium.
