I attached the directions just in case but it seems like you are at the point of it coming off. It will be stuck on there. You may need to GENTLY pry at different areas a little at a time. Make sure all of the bolts are out though. You don't want to warp the pan. So a very thin blade scraper or flat tip and just gently work around and aroung the pan and once you finally get an area again, just make sure you don't pull too hard and warp it. It will come off.I have had them the same way. Hang in there.

The 3.1 I have done, you have to drop the cradle to get the clearance to drop the pan.
