I can not undo the oil pressure switch, what is the trick of hitting the spanner in the engine bay,

Being of an alloy type material I would avoid hitting a spanner with a hammer you don't have the space anyway try using some sort of mole grips they usually shift them after all you don't want to break it as that would mean drilling it out and getting dwarf in the oil way.

For an earlier switch with hexagon under the body sometimes the only way to remove it is to snap off the top to get a socket on the hexagon. Usually needs a long bar and steady pull rather than a snatch to shift a really difficult one without rounding the hexagon (normally Whitworth size).

Intermotor 5051 (or 50510) for a replacement.
