Default Oil pan question

Has anyone tried to replace the oil pan. Is there any other way to get to the four (?) bolts behind the oil pan without dropping the crossmember or anything else like that? Thanks.

I just used a mixture of 1/4 inch extensions and flex joints. It is a real pain in the ass, but it will work. You don't need a 3/8 or 1/2 inch socket to break those bolts loose, they are not that tight.


Now, cutting the pan seal and actually removing the pan was even harder ...
