I have a 2002 jetta. trouble removing oil pan

I have a 2002 jetta. I'm having trouble removing my oil pan because of two bolts placed at an odd angle on the side closest to the driver side. I was wondering if there is any trick to get these two bolts out. I have tried both a ratchet and allen wrench.

Get a flexible head ratchet or an adjustable "snake" attachment. The flexible head ratchet will move in several positions instead of just the 90 degree. That'll help in all those hard to reach places. You might be able to rent one at Autozone, but I would buy one because they really come in handy.

How to remove oil pan gasket from 2002 GMC Yukon Denali?


I just changed my oil pan gasket on my 2001 GMC Yukon Denali. Once all bolts are off the oil pan, the pan and off the block it has no clearance because the differential is in the way. I removed half the diffential since the housing is split in the center. You will see bolts on the differential housing, remove those. But before the diff can come out to make room for the pan to drop you have to remove the axel attached to the diff on the passenger side. Once the axel is off the diff you have room to remove half the diff. Make sure to drain the gear oil first. It take a bit off pulling and wiggling but it will come off. Once that's clear the oil pan is completely free to come out. Hope this helps.

I have taken the oil pan bolts out and there is not enough clearance to remove the pan on a 2002 Buick Regal 3800 to replace the gasket. What steps do you suggest next.


Did you remove the catalytic converter, and motor mount? Lots of stuff has to come off to get this pan out. :o(

HOW TO REMOVE AND INSTALL A OIL PUMP IN A 2002 GMC YUKON DENALI?


remove the engines oil pan and you will see a screen attached to the oil pum. Remove all and replace both items. They simply bolt on. The tang to the pump is inserted into the distributor shaft which is easy to slide in place. Have all areas of the gasket areas clean before reassembling along with a new oil pan gasket too

You need VW silicone sealant D 176 404 A2.
  • Apply 2 to 3mm (1/8") bead of new sealant to oil pan sealing surface. Be sure to run bead on the inside of the bolt holes.
  • Immediately install oil pan to cylinder block and loosely install M7 bolts diagonally.
  • Install and lightly tighten M10 bolts securing oil pan to transmission.

Change an oil pan gasket on a montana


Go down to your parts dealer (hopefully Auto Zone :)) and get the gasket as well as oil and oil filter (unless you are going to use the old oil and have something to catch it in). Drain the oil. Remove the bolts on the oil pan. Remove it and the old gasket. Check to see that ALL of the old gasket has been removed. Clean the mating surfaces. Put new gasket in place on the pan and place to the block. Install bolts and tighten to specs. You can get the bolt torque specs from AZ as well. Add oil before starting engine

2002 Jetta TDI 1.8 Oil Pan


I've changed several oil pans, but never a Jetta. I can tell u that I have always had to remove suspension parts, motor mounts, jack up the engine, etc, It's never been just an easy unbolt it and you're set job. Remember that the oil pump almost rests on the bottom of the pan, so you have to clear it to remove, and that's where the problem (and labor) is. Check to make sure there's no damage to the pump or oil pick-up tube. Yes u should tighten the pan in an alternating pattern, u want it to go up against the block evenly, it u bolt one side at a time you may tweek the pan so it doesn't fit well, and u will have oil leaks, so tighten criss cross pattern slowly all around (a couple turns each bolt before moving on to the next. Good Luck, and let me know how u do. countrycurt0
