you may be able to patch/jb weld the hole.....typically oil pans are held on by a whole bunch of bolts. the part number is 11 13 1 720 754 if your gonna try to source a new one. all the m20 oil pans are the same, with the exception of the iX, of course. if you take off the pan, remember to replace the gasket. its part 11 13 1 730 234.

To take the oil pan out you have to either lift the engine or take the subframe down a bit. Look for writeups for oil pan gaskets, there are a couple out there....

you dont' need to drop the subframe, just the steering rack needs to be unbolted and shifted around. Just make sure you get it back in line before bolting it up. I had to take off a P/S line to get it where it needed to go...now it leaks.

It's a pita to do but you also need to unbolt the oil pump while the pan is just lowered...took me probably 2 hours from start to finish on stands.
