Title says it.
The last time i got the oil changed, the dipstick was stuck, and in trying to wiggle it out, i broke off the pull ring.
Later I sprayed some WD40 on the piece left. With a pair of pliers was able to twist it a bit. In my excitement, i broke the rest of the remaining yellow plastic off flush with the tube.

I bought a new (Dorman) tube and dipstick.

Question is. How difficult is it to replace? I have seen horror stories of broken tubes. But mine is still intact. How does the mechanic ensure he doesn’t brake the tube in the process?

(I’m not capable of doing this myself)

I appreciate any input. Thanks!
