Default AW71 pan removal

Hi,

How do I remove a pan from an AW71 (without wrecking it) that some moron thought would be a good idea to glue on?

Thank you

With a putty knife. Did you remove the bell housing bolt that retains the dipstick tube? If not you will fight and maybe break that tube at the pan.

Yes the dipstick is free, the pan is only being held on by silicone glue. Would a butter knife work?

^ mybe. You can even try a wooden shim, just keep tapping in then moving over a little and tap some more. less chance of damaging the rim of the pan. Putty knife would be better.

Pan is steel
Trans is aluminum

Aluminum gets scratched easier while metal pan will be fine

Dull flat plastic wedge and tapy tap tap with your favorite thumb detector

I vote butter knife, that's probably how I would do it. Just be careful not to mar the aluminum

Take out all the bolts, cut the springs in half and go find a nice speed bump.

Got it off. Unfortunately, most of the silastic gasket maker stuck to the transmission.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO

How do I get this ****e off, whilst keeping my sanity? Moron before me should have used a gasket. They give licences to anyone these days

Razor blade at very small angle very very carefully. Clear your calendar, probably take a few hours or days.

I like to drag the razor blade backwards very lightly.
