Just went to double check is quite easy to see once you know where you are looking. Be aware this is for a right hand drive vehicle so there is a possibility dip stick is located on opposite side to this. Dip stick is located on RHS of engine (as you are facing it) between the air intake and the plastic air intake cover. Easier to access if you remove top plastic engine cover.

1. Grip both sides at the front corners and lift (you will hear click as cover comes free)

2. Repeat in the centre. Gip both side in the centre and lift.....

3. Once these are free pull the cover towards you and the rear clips will release.

Dip stick is then easily removed. (you will notice it is black so that it is hard to see not like other vehicles where they bright yellow which will incourage you to check the oil! A good thing to know so that you can check that the stealers have changed the oil. Photo's attached.
