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.
