Pull the dipstick out of the adapter and thread the new nut on. Chances are however are that the inner piece is stripped and to replace that you have to pull the engine or pull it up high enough to drop the pan down and get your hand in there.

The only option is to pull the motor. Why anyone would only pull the motor up high enough and then have the headache of removing the pan and resealing it in the frame rails is beyond me. It's way easier to just yank it.

If you can't get the nut to thread back on, it's time to pull the motor, pan and replace.

Where are you located?

I paid $2000 to have my pan replaced at the dealership. I have since coated the new one in bedliner.
