The oil pan in the 96 XJS has a crack at the bottom. (It was stolen, damaged, and I am working on repairing it)
It needs to be replaced. After reading other posts, it seems that I need to get the bottom suspension out of the way? Does that sound right? I was hoping I could lift the engine with a support bar and get to all the bolts that way. Has anyone done this before? I’m looking for someone who might be familiar.
If I do have to get the bottom suspension out of the way…the age old question comes up, what else should I get done while I’m in there? Is the steering rack removed too? Sounds like a ton of work for a simple pan.
