Default Oil Pan Removal

Has anyone removed the oil pan on a 2.5? I drove through some deep snow with my 98 OBW and managed to dent and scrape my oil pan pretty badly so I need to replace it. The Haynes manual says that I have to hoist the engine up two inches to remove the pan. Is this true? You'd think Subaru would put some kind of undercarriage or protective shield around the oil pan because it's the first and lowest point of the car in the front! Perhaps the previous owner removed the covers….

TIA

If it's not leaking, and it still has oil pressure, why are you wanting to replace it?

Costmetics?

Any cover that may have been there before would be plastic. If what you hit dented metal, it would not have made much difference. You'll need a "recreational / TSD" skid plate for more of these types of outings.

And dang dude, deep snow is soft and fluffy. You must have found some plowed up ice balls or something!

Default yep

I had to scale some snow that had been plowed to the side of the road and was blocking the road I was turning onto. Since I'm not losing any oil, I think I'll leave the pan alone for now. It's not that badly mangled, just deeply scratched and somewhat dented. Some of the paint is now missing so my main concern is rust formation. Also, I think the gasket may have been cracked but it's holding oil and not dripping so I'm not too worried about it. Sounds like it's rattle can and skid plate time for me!
