Stop acting like this is the most absurd thing ever, I'm sure you can do it without having to take so much apart, or moving different pieces. I've often used swivels and let **** fall just to shove it back up from the underside.

I like them, but:
1- that is a lot of steps to change oil
2- I would leave the skid plate and engine cover off.
3- if you have a drop-in filter LEAVE IT ON TOP! (ETA. Manufacturers should design engines this way)
4- torque specs fur filter cap and drain plug? Dolan Plz....
It took me six minutes to change the oil on my TDI (skid plate and engine cover left off.)
ETA my T&C with 222,000 miles has been going on the oil I bought it with at 218,000. I might let it
go another year before I change it.
Second edit: will actually be changing every fluid in the fall, with new brakes and struts before I turn it over to the newly licensed kid.
