    06 STi Oil Pickup Replacement

    Hey guys,

    It's been a while since I've posted here, but I am currently right in the middle of replacing my broken factory oil pickup with a Killer B pickup. Up to this point, everything is going much smoother than expected, as I have only been at it for about 2 hours or so, and have already gotten the oil pan loose. In comes the problem; The only thing stopping me from pulling the pan right out is the dipstick tube. I cannot figure out what to do with it. The tube, as most of you know, is connected to the oil pan itself. So as of now, the oil pan is just kind of dangling under my car, waiting on a response on this forum to tell me where to go from here. Thanks in advance for the help, and I'll post more later in regards to the method I've used to get the oil pan down.

    Just pull. Sometimes gotta use a little force. I usually try to spray some penetrating oil down where it attaches to loosen it up. Make sure you get new o-rings.

    Edit: Make sure you unbolted it.

    I am assuming you have undone the 10mm bolt holding the pickup tube behind the rear timing cover...Otherwise as mentioned just give her a good tug and she should come loose, you could also grab a decent set of pliers and very carefully unscrew it from the pan for its only really held in there by the tension from the little o-rings on the bottom of the dipstick tube....
