Anyone replaced the seal on the automatic transmission dipstick pipe (lower)? The connection between the dipstick tube and the transmission? Is it the same seal like the one on the engine dipstick tube?

Yep, the oil dipstick tube and the transmission dipstick tube use the same sealing ring.

I would spend up on this seal, shell out the $5 for a factory one (e.g. https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... 30637865oe or IPD probably sells them too).
