How to Drop the Oil Pan in a VW Beetle

    • 1). Drive the Beetle onto a flat surface safe enough to service the vehicle. Use the provided for, or another, jack and jack stands to raise the vehicle safely. Follow the jack manufacturer's suggestions for using these.

    • 2). Open the hood of the vehicle and located the battery at the very front of the car. Use a wrench to remove the negative battery cable, using a wrench to do so. Set it aside.

    • 3). Slide under the vehicle and locate the engine oil pan, located about half way between the tires on the bottom of the engine block. The oil pan is a rectangular shaped pan.

    • 4). Drain the oil from the engine oil pan by first placing an oil drip pan under the oil pan. Use a wrench to remove the oil plug from the back of the oil pan which allows the oil to drain from within. Allow to drain fully, about ten minutes then reinsert the oil drain plug.

    • 5). Remove the bolts along the outside wall of the oil engine pan using a wrench. Remove the bolts in a crisscross fashion, removing one bolt from each side of the oil pan at a time, allowing for an even release of pressure. The oil pan will drop off once removal of the bolts is complete.
