Sawsall Question

I don't own one yet so... Can the blade in a sawsall be mounted upside down? I need to cut into a metal sleeve on my car to remove said sleeve. If I can mount the blade upside down I can hold the tool upside down and get into the area that needs to be cut. I plan to make a series of shallow cuts to weaken the structure so I can then bang it out with a hammer.
Thanks for any advise.

The blade can be inserted blade down or blade up, if that is what you are referring to. I use mine in the blade up position more than the down position because of the clearance it gives me against walls, etc.

I don't know what your situation is, but I thought I'd mention that unless I'm cutting off a roof or something, I usually use a disc cutter for auto work

The blade, in some saws, can also be mounted horizontally in either direction, giving you 4 blade mount possibilities. I find this a real useful addition. Its one of the reasons I went with a DeWalt saw.
