Drop Oil Pan
Having a little difficulty removing the oil pan. I realized that the chilton's manual is about useless for this particular job as its not very detail oriented. It says just to remove the ac condenser bolt, the drive belt and the 14 bolts. I have removed the additional bolts that hold the pan to the trans and trans mount. I have been able to break the RTV seal but I can't get the pan to fullly drop. I think that I need to remove the dip stick tube but not sure what the best way is. I have tried to pry it up and out of the pan but doesnt seem to want to budge much. Didn't know if it was easier to remove the electrical harnesses and try and maneuver the dipstick down with the pan or possibly try and pull it out from the top. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

Got it off just as an FYI to anyone else attempting this its easier to take all the electronics off the dip stick tube and lower everything out at once
