I too want to thank you for the tip on the chain rails. I dropped the oil pan on my 16V last night and found about 8 pcs of the lower rail in the oil pan. The middle rail was also missing the small end clip. I found it in the oil pan also. I used the 4X4 method to keep the engine raised. I raised the engine as far as it would go and cut 4X4s to keep it up. I still don't have enough clearance to remove the oil pan. The oil pick up tube and the dipstick tube are hitting the oil pan. How can I remove the dipstick tube? I tried pulling on it but it won't come off. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
