    Hi Fellas,

    Got the same problem of the top yellow bit getting stuck and ending up broken...

    Checked on GSF: is it the one called dipstick guide for a pound that you ordered?

    Cheeers in advance.

    If the dipstick bit is not properly sealed (well since it's broken) does it affect anything if you run the car?

    It will affect crankcase breathing to a certain degree, just like if you didnt have the oil filler cap fitted. Although to a lesser extent of course.

    I wouldnt drive far without one fitted though, not for just a pound! replace it ASAP.

    I have noticed that the rings on the dipstick were all stuck into the funnel (this is the plastic bit between the guide and the dipstick) so I would need to replace the funnel AND the dipstick. gsf seems to only have the guide...

    I'll ask a stealer but can't be bothered to go all the way to a stealer just to get that bit. Anybody knows who sells OEM audi dipstick and funnel?
