Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
These are such a pain. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you actually have to unbolt the flywheel and loosen the transaxle bolts and then separate the engine and transmission just slightly to remove the pan.
Here is a repair procedure to show what I mean.
There isn't much else published. I found this procedure straight from GM but it's pretty much the same. Some of the pictures are easier to see.
It looks like that's all that's available as far as pictures go. The transmission removal procedure and the engine removal procedure both have the same pictures. GM has one other picture out but it shows how to remove the pan if the engine is already removed from the vehicle; not very helpful in this case.
I just wanted to see if you need any additional assistance.

I never received a rating for this question and thought you had given up. This question has dropped to my timed out list because of lack of response.
It depends on the type of pan gasket you are replacing it with. There are various styles. Which did you use?
