I've just bought a 2006 Corolla ZZE122, The only issue so far is that the dipstick tube has snapped off at around the top of the block. Do these commonly break? How hard are they to replace? Will I be able to buy one? Thanks in advance.557267628_dipsticktube(2).thumb.jpg.f29db53c52e9d2e41180ebbd34865174.jpg

Best to check/confirm that the part number 1145222031 is correct.

This is where you can buy a replacement. 


If you want to pay for express postage, there is this eBay listing which includes a good photo of the part.


There are internet posts about broken dipstick tube but I suspect people have levered against the tube causing it to break especially as there is a fixing bracket in the middle. 

Personally never had to replace a dipstick tube but it should be straightforward to replace as there is an o-ring fitting at the bottom where it goes into the engine block.

I've never seen a dipstick break ever, I have to say. Looks like someone may have leaned over it whilst trying to reach the back of the motor and have successfully snapped it despite it being fixed with a bracket. Is it also possible the bracket bolt was missing ?
