SOURCE: Explorer Dipstick Tube Broke
There is a bracket that holds the tube to the block. There is no clips or retainers that hold it in the block. With the bracket loose you can twist and remove from the block. There is a oil ring on the end of the tube.
Sometimes the old tube is hard to remove...due to rust and corrosion. Spray the tube with a good penetrating oil before you start. Try to wiggle and twist the tube to brake it free....be careful, the tube is thin. If the tube breaks off flush with the block..the piece that in the block will need to get extracted out or remove the oil pan and remove it that way.
