I have been looking and I could not find a DIY on removing the oil pan. I have to change the gasket tomorrow on my 99 1.8. Do you have any advice or links to a DIY on this? I have googled it but I have only found DIY's on b6's and volks. I am not looking to remove the subframe but if it is needed I do not mind doing it.

Thanks

me and my friend did it last saturday.

if you have V6, it should be easy, if you have 1.8T, i recommend to use engine lift.

1) get whatever bolts out you can, there will be another 2 bolts right by the transmission, to get them you have to line up flywheel to get to them,

when you get there you will understand what i am talking about.

2)We did not have engine lift, so we used regular lift that we used to push the engine up.

so to get the pan out you have to remove an engine mount by the water reservoir, that's the only way you can get the oil pan out, because cross member is on the way

goodluck

Yev.

it took us 3 hours to do, well cause we had hard time getting the pan out, until we learned a trick

whatever Sean, it's about fix-a-audi partay, the longer it takes the more pizza and beer you consume the more fun it is.

pretty much pan is wrapped around the cross-member, that's what makes it horrible.

when i had my mk2 GTI, i could do oil pan in a half an hour on the parking lot with 1 wrench

Shouldn't be too bad and is a pretty a straightforward job. I just did my brother's oil pan swap last weekend, MK3 VR6 Jetta. The only hard part was the 20 degree weather, snow and laying on the cold wet pavement. Also, if you have access to a lift that would make it alot easier, I used ramps and it was a tight space, but I was able to manage just fine. Also, this job isn't one that requires a whole lot of tools. My only advice is do the job in a nice comfortable environment and you should be good, it might be a little extra work like the others said due to the crossmember, but no big deal.

If you have an 01, there is no gasket (00 may not use one either, but it is still the 058 block). You use Victor Reinz sealant. Other RTV will dry like glue, and you don't want that.
