    funny, my 03 TDI just broke off as well when checking oil. Broke right at where the plastic tube glues(?) at bottem near crankcase. Did the twist advice work and how did you replace the new at the base?

If the end that is on the bottom of the new tubing is smooth then the old one should twist out with a bit of force no particular direction to pull off though just twisting

Yes, there is a problem with the plastic tube where the oil dip stick goes. It cracks and produces a oil leak that is hard to find when you dont know this. Its cheap and easy to fix.

Hi there,

Jetta's 2006 carry sealed gear box. There is no dip stick to check the transmission fluid. Per manufacturer, transmission fluid requires to change unless there is any issue with transmission. I hope this helps.

How do I replace the oil dipstick tube?


The dipstick can be pulled out of the block with a pair of vicegrips and the new one driven down into the block. Before trying to pull the dipstick tube out make sure it is not held onto the block with a small bolt.

Broken Dip Stick


Most dipstick tubes are a "press fit" into the engine block, and can usually be removed without pulling the engine (if you can get to it).

However, it may be broken off too short, or the mechanic simply cannot reach it with the engine in the car.

Personally, I would get a second opinion before you pay all that money to get a $10 dipstick tube to be replaced.

Try the local Ford dealer. Most of the time, a seasoned dealer mechanic knows "tricks" to do different things.
