UNL1MTD Posted February 27, 2010 Share Posted February 27, 2010 Any body got some tips on removing a very stubborn stuck in place 23 year old oil pan? This is on a 87 MJ and I'm trying to do the RMS (rear main seal). I removed all the bolts and studs holding it on. Then I proceeded to be frustrated for about 2 hours. I tried a rubber mallet, dead blow, regular hammer light tapping, and regular hammer pounding on a block of wood. Not so much of a budge out of the thing. I even tried to hang myself from it, no luck. Then I used a drywall putty knife spatula to pry down the pan, no luck (I felt a bit timid and didn't give it more than a couple attempts, didn't want to f-up the matting surfaces. I'm out of ideas and could use some fresh ones. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
