Shower Pan Removal (Pics)

I have removed the screws and drain from the shower pan and everything appears to be loose. How do I take the pan out without cracking it? Do I pull form the top or pull up from the bottom bending the sides in (especially around the knobs).
See pics. Borrowed the photos from another poster who did not seem to get an answer to his question.

I have to replace rotten wood.

Well, I wound up getting p***** off and gave the shower liner a tug from the bottom and it came out. See pics below. Wasted that time to find out nothing was wrong underneath (Pic One) . Oh well. The reason I pulled it out was that on the other side of the wall the area is rotted (see pic 2). I assumed the wood would be wet in the shower area. I have a fan on it and maybe I can get lucky and not have to move anything to replace the wood.

So, you figure out what the cause was? Worn out caulking ?

Try "Git-rot" or similar product. Saved us a lot of work!

Just guessing based on photos. 1, cracked wheel well - it's two piece I think, a black piece on the outside and a cream colored one on the inside. It's not uncommon for the black one to crack (according to the VAP). 2, that looks like a hot water heater to the left. Where the HWH exits to the exterior, mine was not properly caulked and leaked during a heavy rain.
I hate leaks, they are sooo hard to find.

Can I remove the cream colored wheel well "easily" to see if the exterior piece is cracked? Can't really see anything from the outside because of the wheels.

Went to Lowes this morning and picked up a similar product. Never even thought about it. I love these forums! Hopefully that wll take care of it. Hoping that the wheel well is not cracked as mentioned by another reply

Did you end up replacing the shower liner plastic? I have the exact same setup with holes in the corners and trying to figure out a solution. The plastic has been resistant too all attempts to glue and patch it. Maybe a new shower pan? Has anyone else replaced this?

Here is a fiberglass unit from Inland RV that may work. Would LOVE to talk with someone who has actually utilized one of these in their repair.

Getting ready to take on the same task after this camping excursion is done on Sunday. How did you get the drain out? Just unscrew? I've struggled with stuck drains before and my last AS I had to just cut the plumbing once I got everything loose. Did you use a specific tool to grab the drain to twist it out?
