Re: 2 liter Oilpan removal

You don't need to unbolt the crossmember.  just unbolt the engine mounts and
lift the engine with a jack.  I put it under the tranny bellhousing, may not
be the best of things, but it worked...
You need to unbolt the pan, which will fall down ~3 inches at the front.
then you have to unbolt the 2 13mm oilpump bolts, so the pump falls into the
pan, and lets the pan slide out toward the front.  Small hands are an advantage!

It is a shield for the bellhousing.  it attaches with 2 13mm and 2 10mm
bolts to the bellhousing, should be no problem to remove it.
Good Luck,
