Hi all,
New to the forum. My daughter just cracked her oil pan in her 2000 NB TDI.
When I was removing the damaged pan, one of the bolts next to the transaxle seemed to be stripped.
So I removed the remaining bolts and applied some downward pressure on the pan while turning the bolt hoping to get this bolt to bite and back itself out. The pan quickly dropped and I thought all was good until I saw that it had brought down the brass bolt anchor and a chunk of the mating surface that was previously part of the rear crankshaft seal assembly.
So now it looks like I need to remove the transaxle.

Anybody have any tips or suggestions whether this can (or should) be attempted without a tranny jack?

Thanks

Ooh.....

How strong are you? The automatic must weigh more than the manual.

If you can bench press an oddly shaped object why not? Otherwise I'd play it safe and use a jack, Jack!
