    Replacement of my pan gasket needed, are there any additional parts that need to be removed other than the pan bolts? Also need the torque value for the pan bolts/nuts if anyone has it handy.

    I would remove the oil dipstick tube as this can hold up the pan on 308s. 328s might be slightly different but I am thinking they are the same.

    I'm changing the engine oil pan gasket, found a few threads in the archives but not for the 328. Removing the dipstick tube seems to be a pressue fit tube assy., easy as pulling it out ? or more involved than that ?
    Still looking for the correct torque for the pan bolts, anyone ?
    Thanks in advance !!!
