I've got a lot of help off this site and asked a similar question before but it was closed because I was asking too much.
I'm trying to replace the oil pan gasket on my 99 ranger. It's kind of hard to see in the pictures but there is a metal plate that seems to be blocking the oil pan from sliding forward enough to change the gasket.
I've tried my best to highlight where the plate is by outlining it in green but I don't know how big the plate is, what the plate is called, or what bolts I have left to remove to get it out.
Does anyone know what that plate is called and how to remove it?
