Default Oil dipstick tube

Hey guys just wondering how the oil dipstick tube comes out of the oil pan.... is it just a press fit that needs to be pulled out? Just thought id check before i break ****.
Thanks,
Mike
PS: the reason i need it out is because the pan was cracked by some jack *** before me jacking it up by the pan.... anyway i bought a new pan and need to transfer the tube. And the car is a 1991.

There's a bolt that holds the tube to the block at the same point as the grounding wire. On the driver's side. Then it just slides out of the pan. Has an o-ring sealing it.
