Could someone give me some advice on how to remove the dipstick tube from the timing chain cover?

...and if that doesn't work, break it off and then drive out the remaining piece from the inside with a punch....(I had to pull my timing cover last time and use this method.... "ouch"!)

I just had to do this! The cover was off, so i took a bolt the size of the hole and gently tapped it out from the inside. It only barely bent the bottom of the tube and I wire brushed it and re-used it in another timing cover. Been trying to figure this out for years and could never get one out from the outside!
