1999 Ford Escort 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
I have a 1999 ford escort. Was trying to replace the transaxle fluid and filter. I removed the drain plug and drained the fluid. Next went onto the drain pan (as according the chiltons manual) and I cannot get the pan off due to the center member of the undercarriage. If I would have known this would be a problem, I would have skipped the filter, but now I either have to get it off or risk reattaching with the old gasket since I can't put a new one on. Any thoughts on what to try would be great.
I have attached a picture from the chiltons manual to show you what I mean.
have the same problem?
