Hi everyone, I wanted to know where would I go to have my dipstick replaced? The dealership or engine shop? I've tried Google and searched the forum but couldn't find an answer.

You'd probably have to go to the dealership for the tube. Might as well have them stick it in. Care to share what happened to the original tube?

Pretty easy to replace. Just unfasten that 10mm bolt on the side of the head and wiggle & pull the tube up and out. The new one just pushes back down in the hole. It's not press fit or anything. Just has that O-ring at the bottom end.
