Dipstick Install

This might be the dumbest question of the week.(Couldn't work in the garage any longer today. 106 today, even hotter in the garage.)
I have almost everything put back together after changing the coolant hard pipes and other lines. After putting on the ICV, first boot and the black wire box I realized I didn't put the dipstick back in.
Of course, it seems like it hits the black box so I can't get the angle right to slide it in. I'm hoping that if I take the black box off that's enough room. Or does the hold manifold need to come off?

You can do it without taking off the manifold. I did my CCV without taking the manifold off including the dipstick tube and new o-ring for it.

No the manifold does not need to come off.
