Putting it back wasn't as bad as I thought.I was able to do it all with an open end wrench(8mm IIRC)

I know this a very old thread but I have my engine out of the car and had good access. So a little update on this.

Could not get tube out either and I didn't want to remove the engine mount just to remove it. There is one of four bolts holding the passenger-side engine mount to the block that obstructs extraction of the dipsticktube. Of the four bolts it is the lower forward one that needs to be removed (don't forget to put it back after the tube is back in!) After that it can be lifted up and turned sideways to extract. There was no o-ring on mine and I have yet to check if it is missing entirely or it is sealed only with the crush ring. (Pics later)
