    Default Dipstick

    Can someone do me a favour please, i need a picture of a diesel dipstick if possible, I have just recently had work done regarding EGR cooler ( Davy's post reminded me lol) and noticed today my dipstick felt a bit loose plus there's a bracket attached to it with a hole that looks like it should be bolted to engine.

    So if anyone could get some close up's it would be appreciated

    Cheers

    Don

    Is this any good Don? The plate welded to the housing goes behind the black hose to the bolt.

    It's definitely missing two.

    The one in your photo which is furthest away is a torx screw which secures another much thinner bracket to the back, so that when the middle bolt is screwed in it goes through that too. The nearest one I haven't got. Just the jubilee clip.

    So at the very least you are missing a bolt, a torx screw and the rear bracket assuming the front bracket is hidden behind the housing/hose.

    Just off phone with them this is the 3rd time they have messed up 1st time was spanner left on gearbox then hose left off for power steering which left engine covered and now this.Great quality control NOT !! getting courtesy car dropped off tomorrow and there doing a full car inspection.

    Hate complaining but they are there to do a job and it should be done with due care and attention with 100% customer satisfaction ! they left me sitting in dealership from 9.30am till 5.30pm on the day my car got recovered to them
