There is also a clip on the passenger side of the pan. In order to put the pan/ new gasket on without getting it messed up you need to turn that clip. It will turn with a little long handled assistance.

AnswerYou will have to drop the pan on the tranission. Have a drain pan handy you must remove all of the bolts securing the pan first..this can be messy recommend that car be on jackstands.. Once the pan is removed the filter will be accessible. Remove the old gasket.The pan should be cleaned with a solvent after changing the filter, and the transmission gasket replaced. Torque the bolts on the pan do not want to overtighten these (108-132 in-lbs.). The area where the new gasket will go must also be clean.

Unless you are real comfortable with car repairs I would let a professional do this. It doesn't take them that long.
