HELP transmission pan won't come occ

I have an '09 GC with the 5.7l hemi and I am trying to replace the transmission filters. I have all the bolts off the pan, but I can't find a way to twist it out of there. It does not just come straight down, the exhaust is in the way. Does anyone have any tips? I tried youtube, but could not find one that looked the same as mine. thanks

Yes, I have it loose, It won't come straight down due to the exhaust, and there is a cross member on the other side.

Yes I had found that video, but his exhaust has quite a bit more clearance than the GC. My pan has about 1/8" between the pan and the exhaust. I finally gave up. I was able to clean out the bottom of the pan, cleaned my magnet, and put it all back together. I am going to take it to the shop and have them do it. I spent about 5 hours on my back trying every angle twist and turn. It just would not budge. I would like to hear from anyone that does figure this out, without removing the exhaust. thanks

I have the manual open for a 2010 right now, just copied the standard procedure to a pdf, if someone can tell me how best to upload it I shall. From what it wont be much help, it says that it should basically come out without issue

I wouldn't doubt at all if this is wrong, I have found a ton of incorrect information in my 2010 FSM for the 5.7L

just winging it off the top of my head, but get the exhaust hangar undone, would it sag enough to give you the needed room?

I just took some pics and I am emailing them to me, so I will put them up in a bit. I tried to release the exhaust hanger, but it is so rigid, it does not give any room.

Here are the pics. 2 of them are the front, the one with my fingers is just to show how close it is. The rear is no problem.

I took the skid plate off. There is not one directly under the transmission pan, but the bolts the rear plate were close to the pan, so I took it off. The front skid plate is about 12" in front of it, and is not a concern.
