The dipstick hits bottom, and you stop there. Read the fluid level in mm from the bottom of the dipstick.
It is longer than the tube. It's not designed to be left in place. It's a "tool" for checking the level.
When you're done checking the level, then put the cap back in place with a new red locking tab.
Put the dipstick back in your tool box.
