Post S 500 Engine Oil Level Sensor

I own a 2002 S500 MB. Just got an oil change and the Engine Oil Level Sensor on the dashboard came up with "Visit Workshop" alert message. I took it to the Dealership and they drain some of the oil. I drove about 20 miles then the same message came up again.

I have read through some threads and it seems like i need to replace the Oil Level Sensor. I made a few calls and the damn thing costs $108. I will buy it but i intend to replace it myself.

Can anyone, please please please, post some instructions on how to replace the sensor? Any pictures would also help. Thanks in advance.
