Smile Removing ATF Dipstick

According to my Hanes manual, the ATF dipstick needs to be removed prior to removing my passenger side exhaust manifold. After looking my engine over, I couldn't find any way to remove it. If anybody could tell me how this comes off I would appreciate it
Also, if anyone has tips/tricks for removing the exhaust manifold I would appreciate that as well. Thanks to all who comment!

Most dip stick tubes have a mounting tab which mounts to a bolt on the engine block or manifold bolt. It would be easier to answer your question if you provided year of car and engine.

Follow the tube down towards the tranny with your bare hand. You will feel the tab attached to the tube. Feel around and you will feel where it is fastened. Here is a picture of the tube:Ford XR3Z 7A228-BA Mustang Trans Dipstick Tube V6/GT 1999-2004
