Hi no real problems in the removal and replacement of the sump just a couple of slightly awkward bolts up by the gearbox end and the sump can be a wee bit tight to come of from the sealer, better to just replace than a repair unless the crack is not to big, but i would just advise a new or a good second hand sump!

have a look in the yellow pages should cost about £20 to get it repaired.

as for removal just get yourself two extra long ribe bits size 8 and 6 as the two by the crank are different. or they were on my previous 155.

be prepared for some hard work though as the sump uses rtv sealant as a gasket so will be welded into place but with perseverance it will shift.

if it turns out to be beyone repair pm rgwm he may be able to help.

Remember not to put the metal guard that runs around the exhaust pipe back afterwards... It's very low and I guess it caught something on yours to crack your sump?

As far as Ribe bits go the size 8 can be handled with a Torx T50 and the size 6 with the biggest flat bladed screwdriver bit you get in one of those screwdriver bit sets. Good quality tools essential.
Otherwise it's eBay who charge about £1 for the ribe bits and £4 for delivery, of Halfrauds for their 2 different Lazer ribe bit sets at £29.00

it was the metal block that took the impact on my car and transferred it to the sump. but i did refit my shield and would recommend likewise. i didnt know my sump was cracked until i woke up to a driveway full of oil.

but a direct hit on the sump at 30-40mph would be a disaster. total oil loss so the crank would be shot instantly. would probably kill the whole engine

very risky esp if your cars been lowered.
