Remove the Engine to replace a part

(1999 Ford Explorer)
in Miami, FL on August 28, 2009
I took my car to get an estimate for services. I was told I need and oil change,engine oil pan & gasket and Engine oil pump. I was also told in order to replace the pump the would have to remove the engine and the charge for labor in removing the engine is $630.00. Other people who would not look at the car is tell me they do not have to remove the enginge in order the replace and fix those parts. Would you be able to tell me if the Engine in my car needs to be remove to fix those parts?

My book shows two options to change the oil pump, one is to remove the oil pan and change the pump and reinstall with the engine in the vehicle and the other option is to remove the engine and change the pump, Try a Napa Autocare center and get a different opinion. Maybe there are two options if the vehicle has four wheel drive and the axle housing gets in the way
