If your air conditioning doesn't work why not just remove the compressor to get to the dip stick fixing then it's easy, I don't refit it makes working on the engine a lot easier but you will need to get a belt for a non air con car also makes the car lighter.

I may get around to fixing it at some point. The turbo has been taking all my time and effort. The compressor is at the back isn't it??

The compressor is in front of the dip stick fixing nut which is making it hard to get at, the only way i could tighten it was to remove the compressor.
