Yes as part of CPO..but looks like it is a major repair as lotta things have to be taken apart to get access to oil pan.

Search, there was a post here by someone who had done it. The front subframe is in the way of removing it completely, but it can be dropped by a few inches, enough to replace the gasket. Not sure what keeps it from sliding out towards the rear of the car, but I guess I'll find out when I go to replace it in the summer.

Thanks! I think I found that post. I may try this seeing the cost at shop is crazy. Hopefully there is enough room for my big hands to get in there.

ive done several...its not that difficult but you will need a way to support the engine from the top so the subframe can be dropped...and an angle torque wrench to angle torque all the aluminum bolts..

I just did mine on jack stands in my garage. I started off by following this DIY and ended up dropping the sub frame cause my gasket came off in pieces. So I dropped my subframe and just removed the pan. So much easier with subframe dropped and not really that hard.
