I've did a search on here And found the right dipstick should be 059115611AB
I've got this bit it looks like my oil is way over before I start I have no main screen due to previous owner fitting a second screen
so the dipstick is my only option but I know there are allot of variations before I start sucking oil out I want to know if this one isn't to long or something
As I've read some engines around the same time as mine only had 5.9 litres of oil not 6.9 , mine is 2012 240bhp not sure what engine code to be specific will have a check when I get home

Engine code is indicated on the vehicle information sticker, affixed usually to the spare tyre well under the boot floor (3, below):

Well dunno BUT if you had overfilled by 1 litre then you would have had all sorts of warning lights for sure. My old V6 3.0 diesel Vito was overfilled once by my mechanic and the light came on to say oil pressure too high, so I slowed down and took a litre out. More recently the van had been standing for ages (lockdown) and the dipstick showed min so I added 0.75L. An orange light then came on to tell me too much oil, so I removed 0.5L. Slightly less oil is better than slightly more.
