Cut my worn stock stick that's now used as a plug. The new OE stays in the trunk.....worry free.

I just replaced my stock one with the Craven Speed one. My stock had a split in the shaft that I've been babying for a bit now while I decided on what I was going to do. The CS dipstick I wish was a like more firm feeling, but it glides in and out silky smooth. It does create a good seal so I normally have to give it a twist to loosen it before pulling it out.

Home made extractor tool



dipstick removal tool
I just fished out a half dipstick and thought I would post the tool we made here, since it is a current thread.

We pounded the end of some baling wire to flatten it and give it an edge then bent and twisted it to make a hook. Using the top half we could get the size correct so it would spin on horizontally, but grab when lifted...Spun it down the hole and after about 5 tries pulled the old one out.
I tried the large hemostat tool, but I couldn't get it. Hope it helps someone..
