<VV> Dipstick tube replacement

Just do NOT dent the lower end of the tube or it will be even harder to push it out?

One of mine just twisted out the top, and I never did get the other one out (that was too short - used in a dune buggy?), just added another piece of tube to extend it to the correct length!

I would just tap it up from the bottom as long as it was still poking a 
distance into the pan area. Might need to make a punch the right diameter.

What have you tried already?
