Good morning a quick question : Is it possible to remove the oil sump completely whilst the engine is in the car.
I have a vague recollection it will only drop so far and as I wish to fit a new gasket (a silicon one) total removal would be good.
I have a feeling the oil pick up stops it being able to slide forward to clear the sub frame.
many thanks
Chris

You may have to loosen the engine mounts and jack it up but not possible otherwise.

You can do it by dropping the pan and then removing the oil pick-up. Then rotate the pan to remove it, afair.

Indeed, but the issue being replacement of the oil pick up!

Yep, but I'm pretty sure I've done it before.

Very simple. No need the jack engine up or touch the mounts.
Drain oil. Remove sump bolts and allow sump to drop an inch onto the rack. Push sump across to passenger side an inch. This will expose the pickup tube bolts. Undo those and drop the pickup into the sump. Twist the sump 90 degrees and drop it out.
To reassemble, get the sump into position and fiddle the oil pickup back up then get the bolts started. Grease on the gasket helps a lot. Slightly awkward but not hard.
