Default Oil pan gasket replacement on a 2.5 Legacy??

Have a 97 Legacy GT (auto) I had the rear main seal replaced 3 months ago where I work (tansmission shop) noticed a oil leak dripping from same location a month after rear main was done. I finally got it back to the shop to be re-checked and was told it's the back of the oil pan now. They really don't want to tackle that kind of job they said, and from what I have seen in instructions for tubo kits(to replace the pan) it doesn't -sound- all that hard. Has anybody tackled this kind of job before?? any helpful hints??

It's rather easy from what I've seen. We can do it in no time.. it's just messy and you want to be sure to take your time.

We can talk more about it tomorrow if you want.

The gasket isn't paper one but a liquid gasket kind (if its the same as my car)--one trick I havn't seen on the forum yet ,once you have the engine jacked off the mounts a little and bolts out,
is too take a rigid spackle knife and hammer it between the pan and block (on the corners). Leaves no marks and pops off in less than a minute...w/ no deformation off oil pan

RED ATV gasket material, can be bought at any autoparts shop...
when you put the pan on, bolt it down lightly, let it set 10minutes, then torque it down... make sure you clean the oil pan surface off, and clean the oil pan out thoroughly.... the block is made of aluminum, its soft and easy to scratch, so be carfeful!
