HELP! Engine and Gearbox Oil Change 156 2.5 '99

Been trying to access the oil filter on the V6 moved the coolant clamps but can only just touch it and there is no way there is enough room to slide the new filter in without removing the pipes and/or exhaust.
How is this job done?

Have decided to change the engine oil for the time being and leave the old filter in.
Where is the engine oil drain plug please?
Is it the nut on the o/s of the sump - can see nothing underneath where I would expect it to be....

I want to change the gearbox oil too. Where exactly is/are the drain plug(s) for the gearbox?
Is there a separate plug for the differential and does it have to be filled separately and if so where is the filling point please?

The filter is tricky to remove, the key is to loosen the clamps on the pipes going underneath and move them aside. The drain for the sump is the nut on the side.
