Dipstick on 2021 ACE 30.4 7.3 V8?

Greetings. How do I "pull the dipstick" to check my engine oil on the new Ford 7.3 V8 (Class A 2021 ACE 30.4)? The manual shows the engine dipstick on the driver's side of the engine --- I've located it BUT HOW TO "PULL IT OUT"! Seriously. When it wouldn't budge I twisted it counterclockwise and the top unscrewed!

What has been yalls experience with checking the engine oil on the 7.3 V8?

All thoughts appreciated. EddieA

If you are reading the 1st version of the manual, the picture is INCORRECT (found out about it when I did my first oil change). You were most likely trying to pull out the "oil filler cap", that's is why it came off when you twisted it.
The dip stick is on the PASENGER Side, next to the Transmission Oil Dip stick.

Look at my thread here: https://www.thorforums.com/forums/f8...1-a-25969.html
