I have drove a many of those out. I usually drive them out from the bottom through the hole in the skid plate.

Do you need to remove dip stick tube because it's cracked, rusted or rotted ? And you can't get a grip on it without crushing it. Cut it off at a solid spot and insert an 8mm bolt so your vice grip doesn't collapse it. Then you can twist, tug and pull on it. If it rusted to close to the engine block to get a grip then try threading a rod into it and use a nut and a collar to try and pull it out. Sorry no picture doing it that way.

Ever try to put one of those stretch belts on a Subaru AC compressor ? Quite a stretch. I found the perfect tool for the job. I got these release tools for DEF tank type connectors from Snappy a while back. It has the perfect gap to slide over the belt and the crank pulley. First loop the belt around the compressor then slide the tool over the belt and the crank pulley to hold the belt in place and turn the engine over until belt is on both pulleys then just walk it over to the correct grooves while turning the engine. No damage was noticed on the belt after installation. I could see this working for lots of other applications. This vehicle was a 2010 Forester 2.5.

Default Pro Master AC Belt

Another stretch belt that takes 3 hands to install. A 2015 Ram Pro Master 2500 with a 3.0 Diesel. The stretch belt part is bad enough but to add to that is the crank bolt is inaccessible unless you lower the engine or have a very low profile socket. Solution ? I used a small hose pincher to hold the belt on the crank pulley and used my remote starter switch to bump the engine over until the belt was in place. Also used a pry bar to keep the belt on the idler during the process.
