Regardless of what the RSD does or does not say, the rubber mounts should be screwed into the oil pan just over finger tight to facilitate removal when they shear. Either way, removal of the oil pan won't help, the threads are cast in, there's no access from inside the oil pan.

There's a hex shaped plate the same size as the rubber at both ends of the mount.

Usually a socket on the hex shaped rubber and an impact will spin the broken mounts out. If not, prying with a screw drive in a circular motion always has for me.

The mounts are made to damp and resist impact. Shear forces should be carried through the front bolt.

Some skid plates protect the mounts from sheer better then others.

The BMW metal skid plate resists sheer well and protects the can, wink, wink ;)
