Hello

the engine is pretty tight in there and Bentley usually say to remove the engine for a task like this but it may be possible if you lift the engine off its mounts slightly

the difficulty is getting the sump past the oil pick up pipe as its deep into the sump so you will probabaly have no issue in removing all the bolts and dropping it an inch but then going further is where it wil be difficult

its worth a go but I think the engine having to come out is the most likely option
