Replacing auxiliary/emergency drain pan


Iím looking to replace the auxiliary drain pan under a Corsaire air handler (model - FBHA 17J14SFDAI) that is in the attic. Unfortunately the pan has considerable corrosion. At least I think it is the emergency drain pan. The unit is mounted on top of the pan and the pan looks to be the actual base/foundation of the unit. So I know a little about the situation when a service individual inspects the job, I thought I might ask some questions.

How are the air handlers mounted on top of these pans? Are we talking major labor involved? Is the pan easily detached from the unit. Itís not really a big unit, it is part of a Rheem Classic 10 heat pump. This unit is about 6 or 7 years old I believe. What should I be aware of before I delve into this task? Thanks for any input.
