Default Transmission dip stick.

Guys. After reading the manual, it looks like Iím not missing anything. But I canít get the dipstick out.
I unlock it by pulling it up and try to pull. But it wonít come out. Iím afraid of breaking it.

Is thwre a trick ?

It is a common fault.
I usually end up spraying penetrating oil into the area on top of the steel tube and then twirling/twisting/pulling until free.

Never thkight that cohld could be an issue. I simply wanted to check the fluid and was afraid to brake the dipstick making it useless and stuck.
