+1 on what mikey said. I've done it without pulling the motor and would've been easier and faster just to pull it.

I hate to hear that, Why use such a thin oil pan if it is meant to never be pulled out or off. Someone in engineering failed.

lift cab, pull engine, replace pan and seal, replace engine and cab. Not a must to do it that way, but probably less of a headache.

How often do you hear that? "just pull the motor out it'll be easier."
