Oil Pan Removal 300e

My son bottomed out the 300e "only doing 25 MPH. Put a crack in the aluminum oil pan. I had pulled off the oil pan about 4 years ago but have forgotten how to get the proper clearance.
1. pulled all the bolts off.
2.disconnected motor mounts
3. Jacked up the front of the motor

almost have it out but still need a little more clearance.

Any Help?

Angle the motor a bit towards the drivers side, drop the nose as far as it'll got after lowering the sway bar.

heh its been about 3 years since I did the same thing by running over some debris that was virtually invisible in the pouring rain... I did essentially what you did, although I think I may have put a wood block inbetween the jack and the remnants of the pan in order to lift it high enough to remove, then I stuck wood blocks under the motor mounts I think... then I removed the jack and took the pan out

Good luck, and dont be so mad hehe, I did it going like 10mph in the rain
