This depends on what car you are talking about. If you have an e36 M3 there is a bolt about halfway down the dipstick tube that needs to be loosened ( I believe it is a 10mm). Once this is loosened you have a good time to replace the o-ring on the bottom of the tube and you can reposition in the sump from the bottom of the vehicle. Now, while pulling down on the tube from the bottom of the car have a buddy tighten the bolt from the top or find a way to get your arm up to that bolt and tighten it. .
