Look to see where the dipstick tube is bolted to the engine for stability. Unbolt it. Then climb under the truck and look at the oil pan, on the sides, to see where the dipstick tube presses into the oil pan. Simply pull the dipstick tube out of the side of the oil pan and retrieve the dipstick. Do NOT drive or run the engine of your Caravan with the dipstick tube removed. Oil will leak out and cause engine damage. HTH. -Jim

Awesome! You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim

Same broken dipstick here on a 2005 SXT Grand Caravan. To remove it I drilled a 1/8 to 1/4 " hole in the exposed plastic using a 3/8" drill bit. Screwed in a long skinny wood screw I had laying around and pulled out the dipstick with a pair of pliers. Pulls out without very much resistance at all. It's quick. Replacement dipstick is about $9.00
