Question How to rmove the dipstick tube on a 2.8L M130 250C

Having problems with the dipstick on my 1972 250C. The tube has rust on te inside and you have to force the stick into the tube with a good amount of force. I have a car I can steal clean tube and dipstick off of bi I jav mo clue how to remove the dipstick to begin with.

Any help Benz gurus would be much appreciated.

The tube is a press fit. You can freeze it or knock it out from the underside.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
