SOURCE: How do I remove the
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Posted on Nov 05, 2010
What you have there is the oil pump pick up tube. It does indeed have a small screen on the bottom end.
To get the pan out, you can either disconnect motor mounts and raise engine up, or try to access the bolts holding the pick up tube to the bottom of the oil pump.
If there is sufficient space between the pan and the bottom of the block, I'd try to remove the pick up tube if I were you.
Be sure to thoroughly clean the gasket surface on the mating flange of the pick up tube and the oil pump.
A air leak at this point, after re-installation would be a really bad day for you.
The pump would be unable to pull enough (if, in fact, any) oil from the pan to properly lubricate the engine.
Sounds like you reasonably well understand what you're doing, so I won't belabor the point about making sure the gasket surface is cleaned.

You may have to drop one end of the oil pan down enough for you to put your arm in and unbolt the oil pump. The oil pump hanging down in the pan won't allow you to pull the pan out until the pump is unbolted.
