Does this have to be removed to change oil and filter? Just read the posts about the pan, but saw no mention about oil and filter changes.

the front part of the pan is held in place with 2 fasteners called Dzus fasteners. You just turn these a 1/4 turn and the front piece of the pan comes off. Piece o cake

It is a two piece unit. A smaller front piece has to be removed to access the oil plug and filter, and it can be removed with only a screwdriver. The much larger rear portion stays on.

Yep, Mark, I bought one of those filter wrenches from Hal a while back, along with some filters, but haven't used it yet. Needs oil change, but wait till spring.

Oil Change Wrench

Yep, I bought one of those wrenches a while ago. Great wrench. Only one problem. It's thin and I keep putting stuff on top of it and then not being able to find it when I need to do an oil change. LOL.
