Unless you get a hose that goes through the dipstick tube (pretty darn small) no. The dipstick tube has got a generous distance from the end of the tube to the bottom of the oil pan.Does sucking the oil out through the dipstick really get the oil sludge out of the oil pan?
Yes it sounds like someone put that bolt in too tightly.Hello I’m trying to change my oil and I got the filter on but I’m having trouble getting the plug bolt off. Does anyone have any recommendations
The tube could be in the top and have 10" to the bottom of the pan and not matter. What matters is the length of the dipstick and the length of the suction tube. I do all 3 cars this way. The suction tube is plenty long enough. In fact, I have inserted it so far that it hits the pan bottom and curves back up and out of the oil. Pull back slightly and it then dips below oil level to continue removal.Unless you get a hose that goes through the dipstick tube (pretty darn small) no.

Hence leaving a fair amount old contaminated oil left in the engine.
I've got spare dipstick tube for V6 laying around somewhere. The end of the tube that sits down in the oil has got large cut-out in it, which is approx 1.00" from the bottom of the oil pan. Definitely going to leave some old oil behind.
The 1.8 and the TDI I'm not so sure about.
