I just saw an old post to loosen the mani bolts and tilt it to get the tube out,

Almost a disaster, I noticed my oil a little above the line so I was going to suck a little oil out, and had my brothers pump bulb siphon,
I pulled out about a 1/2 quart of oil and when I went to pull the hose out the last little bit of hose broke off into the dipstick tube, I could see it just to the top,
I just removed the dip stick tube and pushed the hose out with the dipstick, it was all there,
I guess the hose had got brittle from being used in gasoline,

I ran into that issue last season with my oil extractor tube getting brittle from using it on hot oil. Now I buy a new set each season. As Beerdart mentioned, removing the manifold bolts allows extraction of the dipstick tube. Not as painful as my panicked reaction first led me to believe

i got one in my 07 rxp that broke off, pulled the manny off and dip tube housing to find nothing. What need to be done next? motor out? or just leave it in there?

Pull motor, split cases and remove plastic tubing.
