Default Oil pan replacement?

Got in a small car accident today... Go suzuki totaling a car, and putting a huge dent in another, with minor damage to itself... Anyway, I popped on a small median, and with my sx4 being lowered, it ruptured my oil pan, among other minor damage to the underside. The only thing I'm worried about mostly is that oil pan.

Anyway, to make things short, I need to replace it(the oil pan), or at least get it off to weld it. Either or, it looks like I have to pull the engine to get it off, as it extends towards the drivers side and 2 of the bolts on it are far behind the engine support. Any hints on how to get it out without pulling the engine? I'm not in the mood to clear out my garage and go car less for a few weeks...

Thanks.

There's enough room. You have to unbolt the back of the support member that goes down the middle and remove the front cat.
You'll want to put a jack under the trans to give yourself a bit more clearance.
After that its pretty straight forward.

Thats exactly as I did actually. I didn't want to drop the engine, so I was really wary of taking that support off, but after jacking the whole engine up and making sure the other support was good, I removed it, and removed the front cat and everything was straight forward after that.

I'm gonna go get it welded tomorrow, 200 is a bit much to shell out for an oil pan. Mine's got a bunch of cracks in it on the inside, so I'm gonna think about maybe actually getting a new one just so I don't have to do this whole thing twice, but we will see.

Thanks for the reply!
