Whats the size of your dip stick...

After the bracket that supports the inlet manifold to the engine block being left in the engine bay unattached to anything ( when the car was in the garage when the previous had it) it seems at some point the bracket it has hit the alternator live and the shaft for the dip stick causing the dip stick to kind of melt in places! So when i last went to check my oil all i pulled out was the plastic top to the dip stick. eventually i managed to fish out the rest of it.

My Problem now is that Alfa are wanting 50+vat for the dip stick which is crazy money!
Ive been looking on Ebay for breaking 2.2 engines to get one off but had no luck yet.

Does anyone know if the diesels share the same part? As it seems there are a lot more diesels being broken

no, the length woll be different without a doubt.

If someone could measure the dipstick you could order from another brand if you found one. I found a Hyundai dipstick for my Giulietta which has the markings in the correct space and can be read more easily with clean oil. cost me 10 new!
