Default 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid oil pan removal?

My husband and I are trying to change the oil pan gasket on our Escape, but specific instructions for the hybid seem to be vanishingly few. We have removed all of the bolts we could see from the bottom of the pan, as well as some from the catalytic converter, but we are now stuck. What the heck are we supposed to do now?

If anybody has instructions we could follow or links to some instructions, we would be infinitely grateful.

It it were my vehicle and it was free and clear, I would try gently prying the pan off little by little (ensuring the pan was drained already). Heat will create a seal. I would recommend you look at a couple of related videos with a similar setup to get a feel for how it's done. I would speculate the basic process is the same as other similar vehicles. Tell us what happens. Hope this helps.
