Take a long LONG screwdriver and a HAMMER. I used to be a professional mechanic so I used this - - then simply drive the screwdriver through the filter and turn it. It is messy but when all else fails ---
You may also need a huge pair of pliers before it's over - simple do as much with you can with the screw driver - this usually works - but if not use the pliers to get around what is left of the filter. If you can send a picture it will help - so if this fails you - send a pic. There are filter straps you can try - but if they fail the screwdriver will work.
Hope you get it done with my suggestion if all else fails as it sounds like maybe it has.

When changing head gasket is it necessary to also change the valve stem seals ???

It is not strictly necessary on most cars if the engine has not been burning oil from worn seals there. On some newer cars gaining access to these seals can be quite difficult even after lifting the head. On others it is much easier. Then on some engines like Hyundai Excels you virtually have to because it is such a weak spot.

So if you can without too much trouble it is a good idea.

How do i stop the service engine soon indicator

First you have to have access to a trouble code reader..connect it and read the code, that should give you an idea of what the problem might be. Most readers can erase stored codes but if the actual problem is not fixed, it will light up again. If you go to an auto part retailer such as AZ they will read it for you and erase it if you ask them to.
I hope this helps!

I have a 2000 VW Beetle. My ABS light has been on for a while and last night my brake light and battery light beeped a few times then kept blinking. They finally shut off then about a couple of hours later...

I suspect bad brake pedal position (BPP) switch. Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal position switch placed above pedals on the support.
The best idea is to access the ABS ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com, or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Code) memored. Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC's stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.
Good Luck!

Transmission pan gasket.

If it's readily accessible, you can but it's also a good idea to replace the filter while you're there. A new filter, fluid, and gasket should keep the transmission trouble free for at least 30K miles.
