    Its simple mate. undo the 2 screws holing the plastic thing in front of the inlet if that fails smash it like i did. then you will see a metal bracket with 2 allen key bolts holding it onto the inlet and take that off then pull the dipstick tube off mine snapped just at the metal pipe when i pulled it, just a case of sliding the new one on then :)

    Since playing with torque on my phone checked for faultstonight and one has come up p0172 and done abit of lookjbg around and seems to be pointing at the maf? It says bank 1 too rich. will clear the code tomoz and test again to see if it comes back.

    Going to be getting the stuff to service it aswell, was told when i bought it that it was serviced just before i bought it, dont think they reset the service monitor on the dash so its telling me i need one. so will get it done end of the month then i know ita been done. will do the haldex oil and filter next month once i have some spare cash to get the filter tool

    Got my service parts priced up and will be getti g them all tomoz so i can get it sorted at the weekend. came in at just under 60 with bosch plugs. would it be worth payi g the extfa and getting some platinum ones? Priced up the haldex stuff aswell but will have to wait till next month. Also is there a way to turn the service indicator off without vagcom?

    car has now been serviced :D

    oil
    oil filter
    pollen filter
    spark plugs

    have the fuel filter to do but will do that another time, also reset the service indicator, so all is well now :D lets see if this sorts the dodgy mpg im getting with it, if not it will be getting a smoke test done to see if there are any leaks that are causing it, seems to be alot smoother now its been serviced too :)
