I have a leaky seal on my oil pan. I need to drop the oil pan but I can't get at the rear bolts. Are there any tricks to doing this or what do I have to remove to get at them.

have you already started?
often oil ends up leaking and dripping down by the oil pan which makes it look like an oil pan leak when it's really something else like valve covers, rear main, cam seal, etc.

on the older gen subaru's you have to lift the engine a few inches to get to those bolts. very annoying. unbolt motor mounts...trans mounts and push the engine up to gain clearance. haven't done a 2.2 but i've pulled them and think this might be similiar. someone will clarify.
