Question Looking for oil dipstick assmbly

So, when I was changing out my glow plugs an interesting thing happened. I was removing the valve cover on the passenger side, and when I went to remove the bolt that holds both the valve cover and the oil dipstick assembly I found that the bolt had loosened from the bottom, and I couldn't get the top bolt off that holds the dipstick assembly. Of course by the time I had realized this I had torqued on the bolt pretty hard and in the process bent the hell out of the dipstick assembly, kinking it to the point that I could get the dipstick out, but not back in after I finished up the glow plugs and put everything back together. I tried to straighten the dipstick assembly back, but the kink in the tubing is impossible to fix. Any suggestions on where to find an oil dipstick assembly? I googled it and couldn't find any hits-and I can't find the part on any of the online auto parts dealers. At this point I'll go to the dealer unless anybody knows where to get one! Anybody ever have this happen?
