Default '99 SLE oil pan removal..

Can I do it from underneath without a lot of hassle?

Picked up a pretty big rock dent today.

If not, guess I'll get out the slide hammer and MIG welder.

Yep, the oil pan comes off in a jiffy. Didn't take us very long at all to change the oil pan gasket on my '97. You should have no troubles, especially considering your level of experience.

The biggest problem with mine is an oil filter line that blocks access to a pan bolt. Yours may not have to worry about it, though. Not a difficult job.

Bob--if you're interested, let me know:

It will bolt right up.

The other thing to keep in mind when dropping the pan on an L36 is that you have to remove the oil pick up. It'* held in place with two 10 mm bolts. There'* a gasket between the pickup tube and pump. That gasket is only available from the dealership. $1 or so if I remember correctly.
