Hello, thanks for writing in about your Jeep Compass. Check the location of the other bolts on that component to be sure they are adequately holding it in place before removing the three bolts to the pan. If there are sufficient bolts holding it in place, you should be able to remove those bolts. If you’d like some help with this or run into any issues, consider Your Mechanic, as one of our technicians can come to you and ensure a proper replacement of your oil pan gasket.
