Pressure switch is about $20 and is located next too the drivers side rack boot. Willl have a blue injector type plug going into it.

I recently replaced the switch and the O ring at the back of the pump(remove the adaptor that the high pressure hose screws into and you will see a small o ring). Ford sell a genuine o ring but I just used one from those kits you get with all different sizes.

Also, might be a good idea to replace the fitting on the end of the High Pressure line as sometimes this is where they leak VERY OFTEN. You buy a BA 3F656 B for about $15.00 and then VERY carefully Hacksaw off the OLD one or use a Nut Cracker and replace with NEW nut :D
