    Default S16/Mi16 Dipstick Length

    Can anyone tell me what the length of an XU10J4 dipstick is? I need the distance from the full mark to the bottom of the knob which seats against the tube.

    Hi Peter, I just measured mine at 615mm. Note that the dipstick is not straight, it is twisted and has a bend in it. so straigtening it out against the tape measure could introduce some error.

    I butted the end of the tape against the knob and took the measurement a the top of the notch in the dipstick, whilst pulling it as straight as I could get it.

    Hi Peter, I should add, that EVERY oil change the car has had, from three different peugeot dealers and two different independent mechanics, the oil level has been probably 10 - 15mm above the full mark!

    and I have had three dipsticks over the life of the car, all the same.

    That sounds painful

    yes the plastic on the end degrades, that's why I have had three. No fun getting oil every where when it spouts up through the dip stick tube.
