Am trying to check tensioner type on my last of the Nikasil VDPs. All but one of the fasteners on left/B-bank cover are undone (though captive in cover) except the one holding the dipstick tube. I’ve undone the nut but to lift the tube bracket over the bolt head ‘stud’ extension I’d need to lift the tube but can’t even see where it joins the block or any further fasteners to try dislodging it. Yet without the bracket and tube removed I can’t undo that final fastener holding the cover.
I tried a search but does anyone know how to solve this puzzle. The car’s undriveable in bits so a quick answer would be extra- helpful please?
