Finally got around to changing the undercoating distribution device oil pan on my 240D.

Degreasing.

Ready for removal. Or close enough.

Surprisingly only one bolt broke. Unsurprisingly, it was because Iā€™m an unobservant idjit. All but two bolts were threaded directly into the block. There were two longer one that extended past the block and had a nut holding on a bracket. Me not realizing there was a nut there under all the grease just kept turning the suspiciously difficult to turn screw. Until there was a snap and a nut fell down from up on high. Luckily the screw still came out fine, I just needed to get another one.

All back together. Hopefully it holds up.
