Oil light on 320d

Hi,

300 miles into 3 week euro trip and I notice the warning triangle appear on the dash. A quick check and it is the low oil light. No gong no warning pops up.
I continue and check the oil the following morning when cold and it's at the top mark meaning full.
I worry no longer until it does it later again (same no gong and just the warning triangle until I check).
This happens mid journey sporadically not at the start.
So I find some wifi and try to download the manual (I left mine in the uk). The only manual I can get is the petrol one which states to check the oil you must do so after the engine has been run.
I always check the levels when cold (doesn't everyone?) and it's fine.

Could someone scan or photograph the owners manual (320d pre lci) on the oil warning light page and any other relevant info as I'm out here in France for 2 more weeks.

I've checked the oil physically a few times and its at the same level as when i changed the oil 11 months ago. I suspect the oil level sensor is being a bit crap hence coming on.

Many thanks

Or could you point me in the direction of an online version for a 320d m42t, as all the ones I've found are for petrol.
Thanks
