    It can be removed with out axle stands, but you may need a jack to get the rear screws out. Even more so if it's been lowered...

    They are removed using a large flat blade screw driver, they take around 2 turns if that to remove. If you don't trust the jack shove a alloy wheel under the car, the the jack fails it will land on the alloy...

    Mine is on normal sport ride height, and i usually manage an oil change without lifting the car, you just need a shallow enough drain pan.
