    Hey guys. I hope everyone is well. Its been awhile since I've been on. Does anyone have any instructions or a video on how to replace the upper Oil dipstick tube? It is the upper half of the tube that needs to be replaced. The end of it broke completely off above the bracket that attaches it. It is the Black tube in the picture below. Ive have unbolted it but I cant see down behind the engine where to put the replacement if I pull the old broken one out. I don't want to get stuck not being able to mate the new upper with the lower tube. Thanks for any help! Upper dipstick.jpg

    Once that bolt is out the tube should come out with a little bit of force straight upward. It basically goes into rear cover vertically but has a couple o-rings on it that can cause a headache. You should be able to see it if you’re underneath it looking up on drivers rear of engine.
