Tranny dipstick leak

I have searched and searched but have not found the answer. My tranny dipstick is leaking at the base as it enters the transmission. How do I fix this? Does it just pull straight out and then I replace the o ring?

There is probably a bolt somewhere on the side that holds it as well but yeah, o-ring at the base of the tube.

If it's leaking at the base, you are going to have some fun trying to fix it. The tube is in two sections, the lower section is pressed into the trans. If it's leaking between the upper and lower section then it's just a oring.

I double checked and it is leaking at the base not at the connection between the two pieces. Do I have to drop the pan?

You will need to drop the pan and the rest of the transmission or pull the cab. The good news is the tool you need is fairly cheap.

The pic shows the trans standing on it's tail.
