It turns out I have the quite common issue of a snapped dipstick. However, I can find no real info on how best to remove it. Its snapped too far down to fish it out manually.

So:

Does the dipstick tube unbolt at all? Or is it a sump drop job?

If sump drop, how tricky is the job? I've done a sump on a Vauxhall 1.6, but I imagine this will be more complicated!

I'd love to just leave it, but I want to do an oil change, and don't feel comfortable doing that without a dipstick! I'm not too worried about the remains getting caught in the engine as it won't go near any of that, but it's annoying!

Hi


depends how much has broken off ?


If its only a small bit it won't cause any harm probably get stuck in the sludge in the bottom of the pan.


You will need to buy a replacement to use for checking the oil - about a tenner on eBay
