Well there is a way of getting the oil pan off without completely removing the engine, but you would have to disconnect the trans and lift and move forward the engine. However you need to have the engine put on a stand upside down while the sealant is curing. If you take it to a dealer its going to be 1500 bucks plus to have them do it.
