This changeout sounds a very useful preventative.
A PN for the dip stick would be really helpful - thanks fellas.

A Google search suggests that's the tube rather than the dipstick itself?

Oil pick up pipe / sealant

All I did was to cut off the old pipe and crimp, then recover the inner mating parts and replace with new pipe pushed onto the fittings and a jubilee clip at each end.

@grey golfster  Part number is

06F 115 611 F

To my horror when I removed the old dipstick the little orange ball was no where to be seen. Where is it? In my effing sump that's where it is. Good thing I was taking it off anyway

I've done this before on a friend's AAX, but I finally attacked mine this weekend.   

Someone has been in there before.  Black Loctite used instead of the VW stuff.  Oil pickup was clear apart from some orange dipstick crumbs and a small amount of other debris. 

I would seriously recommend just replacing the pickup (and the green O ring) because bits of crap gets stuck behind the 'lip' which is hard to get out.   But as I did it impulsively, I hadn't armed myself with any parts.  So I did what I said I was too lazy to do and scrubbed it for 20 mins  :grin:   Reused the O ring too as it was still pliable.

There was quite a lot of generic crumbs in the sump.  No idea what it was, but thankfully not metal shavings.  It's all nicely scrubbed out for peace of mind.

I thought I would throw in some Mobil 1 0W40 'New Life' as it was on offer over the weekend and the engine seem to like it.  Very smooth.

Previously I was using Silkolene 5W40 which is a racing oil and clearly best saved for summer use because it was causing about 3-4 seconds of tappet noise on start up, which is an obvious sign of an oil being too thick to reach the head quickly.  Even though it's a 5W, it doesn't necessarily pump like other 5Ws from cold. 

And finally, never use windscreen glue to seal a sump to an engine block!!!  Not my engine, but stumbled on it over the weekend and was in disbelief about the things some people do to their engines!

Nice one pudding - I too have done it on an AXX before and am doing it tomorrow on my new BWA.

Did you just use axle stands? Do it by yourself?

Yeah did it on my own and used Axle stands.

I recommend tying the turbo oil drain pipe to the driveshaft out of the way (you might want to get a new gasket for that, I reused mine), and also move the electric water pump out of the way.   Once you've put the sealant on the sump, you've only got about 20 mins to get it fitted and torqued down, and these 2 things can get in the way when offering the sump back up to the block.

I know it's a sealer that cures in the absence of air (can't remember the name for that) but I've found it starts to harden regardless.  I used the Dirko stuff from fleabay / amazon.

Yeah as above, a long 5mm ball ended allen key for the 2 bolts tucked up behind the bell housing will be very handy.  I lost mine, but got away with a normal allen key.  I was really unprepared for it tbh, but blagged it somehow  :grin:

Yeah I've got that. Done this whole job before - just refreshing myself!

Yeah I ended up tying up a few things back out the way aswell - made it  a lot easier
