Best thing to do is to undo the engine mounts and lift the engine up. You can use an ond seat belt and a strong peice of wood that will fit accross the engine bay. You can use a tie-down ratchet as well to lift up the engine as it will make things easier. then you'll have more room to remove the pan. Cheers.

SOURCE: replacing oil pan
not that hard,just the 4 bolts at the flywheel end can be painfull,there is a cut out in the flywheel to make it easier you will have to turn the engine over by hand to find them,use the proper vw sealant or you will have oil leaks,it aint cheap but its a lot cheaper than doing it again.......

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.
The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.
Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.
You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.
The head gasket is another story.
Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.
Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.
Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.
If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.
If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve
If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.
If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

the filter has to be removed counter clockwise." most cars do"
.dont une a ratchet...first try twisting by hand......if you use a ratchet without knowing which way to turn it...you could strip the treads that hold the filter....and this could cost you big money to get it repaired......

1.Disconect lower hose from intercooler and oil (from 0,1 liter or more) (sometimes 1-2 liters) comes out, you should not drive it.(car had probably loose power) Change the turbine, oil and oil filter. do not forget to disconect lower hose and let oil drain out. Otherwise when new turbine is instald, the air flow will **** this oil inside the engine and distroy it.
2.your car is not designed to run without turbine and will not work like normal disel.(SDI).
hope it helps
