When I dropped the sump on mine I had the box off and jacked the engine up using a engine hoist, I was replacing the rear main seal so box came off anyway, I may have unbolted the ARB for better access to the bolts but that was it.
I changed the sump on a c5 1.9tdi not long ago and I did that...

these C6’s aren’t too bad, disconnect cat and DP section, unbolt driveshafts, slave cylinder and gear linkage...
