this is probably going to include having you to remove the windage tray as well. If you can't get it out at this point, you should be able to grind it down and leave it there. It just means that you will not be able to use this spot again for the next timing belt change. When it comes time to remove these things to fix this problem, take some pictures so that people in the future will have reference as to what can happen when they do this or plan to do this

good luck with this, it is just going to take a little time and some patience to fix this now. The cost should only be about $30 for a windage pan gasket and a tube of high temp rtv
