DEPENDS ON THE MAKE AND MOTOR BUT MOST ARE A PRESS FIT INTO THE BLOCK WITH A RUBBER O RING AT THE BOTTEM. GOOD LUCK

There should be a fastner that secures the tube assembly near the top of the engine. after this is removed you should be able to just pull the tube right out of engine, you may find it comes out better if you twist it while pulling.

If the dipstick has broken off into the tube on a Nissan Altima, you can remove it using pliers. Other people have had luck using industrial strength vacuums and sucking the broken dipstick up.

You would probably have to follow the dipstick tube to where it meets the engine, remove the bracket bolt and either remove the tube or lift it up to push the dipstick up or out of the tube.

You'll have to remove dipstick tube first and then push broken dipstick out from the bottom side up. Before removal of the tube clean surroundings to avoid dirt from getting into engine.

Cut the tube with a tubing cutter- remove dipstick and use rubber tubing and hose clamps to reassemble dipstick tube what up.

In many vehicles, the dipstick tube can be removed. Check and see if this is possible on your vehicle. If so, just remove the tube from around the dipstick. There should then be enough of the dipstick sticking out from the engine to grab on to.

Open the hatchback. Behind each tail light assembly is a round cover. Remove it and you'll find two big plastic hand-turnable nuts. Remove those and you can pry the assembly out of the car.

you have to remove the door panel to access the inner door and remove the entire door handle assembly ( from the inside). Once you've got the handle out, remove the lock cylinder, to access the broken key.

You will have to remove the door panel and replace the regulator assembly. In some cases it comes as an assembly with the motor.

Take a needle-nose vise grip or similar tool to extract it.

You'll need to remove the alternator and also the oil dipstick. Remove the bolt that holds the dipstick on and when you move the dipstick out of the way the alternator will come out. Otherwise the alternator is too large.

Look under the hood, and locate the transmission dipstick. Grab the top, and pull the dipstick out of the dipstick tube.
