1998 Ford Windstar Question: Oil pan replacement

What has to be removed to replace the oil pan? Is there anything else I should consider while I'm at it? -
Answer 1
If the oil pan has to be replaced due to impact,check that the oil pump pick up is not damaged. If the engine has high mileage it may be a good idea to check the engine rod and main bearings for wear. -
