    Default m20 oil pan removal - the dipstick

    Removing the oil pan and replacing the gasket on a 89 525i m20. My Haynes and Bentley books fail to mention a couple things - like the dipstick holder sticking out of the top of the oil pan. Anyone know the procedure? What do you need to remove? How do you remove the dipstick holder? So far I have the bell housing off and the oil level sensor off. Help...

    Thank you thank you thank you! There are also power steering hoses/pipes blocking a couple of the oil pan bolts. Is there a trick to maneuvering around these?
