My 2000 Jetta 2.0 needs an oilpan, but the old one was apparently siliconed on and all the amount of prying (not wanting to mar surfaces), and striking with a rubber mallet will not break it free. Those of you with tips and tricks, let's hear what you have to offer for advice. Thanks, Brian.

Double check you have all the bolts out especially where the trans and engine meet. It shouldnt be that hard to get off even with silicone. did you try hammering a pry bar in?

I was worried that I would mar the mating surface on the block. Not worried about the oilcan surface, it's being replaced.
