Question Sentra oil pan removal

Hi, I recently picked up an '88 Sentra coupe (a genuine little old lady's car with only 60k miles) problem is I need to drop the oil pan to replace main and rod bearings. does anyone know how to get around or remove that hard rubber seal at the back of the pan and auto-trans front plate which covers the two end pan bolts? any help will be greatly appreciated.
Incidently, this is my first nissan and I am wondering why I have have wasted my time and money buying other types of carsfor the last 25years, the build quality of this sentra is incredible, parts are half the price of parts for my stealth,

for the auto tranny plate youll have to take the tranny of the car sorry for this !!... they sell somekind of hammer/knife to separate the pan from the block check in tools at your local tool seller... maybe the bolts you can reach them with a ratchetkey of somekind instead of a regular socket (?) and before i forget... take the crossmember off !!

P.s Stealth are such nice car it really kicks ass

You can also call the dealer to talk to a mechanic... they usually get the answer quick to those ...

Crazy !

***** I just pry out the end of it, grab it with pliers, and yank it out . I don't bother putting it back. That part serves no purpose that I can detect. Only the auto trans cars have them. I use a 1/4" drive, 10mm swivel socket to get the two rear oil pan screws. If anyone can tell me what that thick rubber spacer thing is for, at the back of the oli pan., please let me know!

Thanks for the help, the plier method worked great, I was even able to salvage the seal and reinstall it but I agree that it does not appear to serve any purpose. that Sentra is now a sweet running machine, the best 300 bucks I ever spent.($200 to buy the car/$100 to fix the engine)
