Dip stick tube removal

Post by kelvingenders » 06 Aug 2013 11:12 am

Hi all, I've got oil leaking from the bottom of the dipstick tube...where it connects to engine sump. Is it easy to remove. Do you need a special tool, or does it unscrew. Is a leak from this common or have I got a wrong diagnosis on the B200 redblock

Has a small O ring on bottom of tube. Has one single 10mm bolt somewhere up the tube off a bracket. undo that, pull tube out fit new O ring should be golden.

Turns out there was no o ring!!. Probably part of the problem.....have put 10 mm x 2.65 mm one on.... Hopefully this sorts the leak
