Is it stripped out? Or is the tranny mount in the way? If it is stripped it is going to get messy. If the mount is in the way then you will have to support the tailshaft housing and remove the mount to gain access to the bolt. I don't remember having any trouble getting my tranny pan off of my rig, but it was 2 years newer and a 4X4.

sounds like your dealing with a half stripped bolt hole.the bolt is fine no doubt ,the aluminum case is boogered, take a 12 point socket that is a little smaller a sae type I guess would do,as your working with metrics or visa versa and hammer on bolt head for a clamp on fit,then turn out while pulling out slowly ,take easy ,hammer and pulling as turn
