Oil Soaked??!!

My 94 325si has tranny oil soaked into an insulation mat that BMW calls the "Sound Insulating Dash Panel Engine Room" part. The last owner kept putting tranny oil into the manual transmission even tho the rear seal was blown on it. So in the area just below the shifter, on the tranny side of the body sheet metal, this mat lives. I'm swapping in a good used tranny, but I'm wondering what to do about this mat. It looks like a real bear to remove & install a new one. Can I just tear it out? Where it passes near the headers, it's aluminized, if that's gone from that spot, will heat on the body sheetmetal be a prolem? Thanks all in advance!!

I also had a leak that soaked this pad. I removed most of it by removing the plastic fasteners and kind of jerking it out. More came out via a old kitchen knife . If you have the tranny out it will be much easier. It also removes a bit of weight . As far as noise and heat...this is the wifes track car so I really can't tell you. Does it get any hotter inside..I don't really think so. A/C's been removed so it's always hot.
