removing the lower oil pan for leak repair

i have my 1976 300D benz. just recently, i hit a hard protruded object along a rough road. it damaged my lower oil pan. there was an oil leak near the drain plug but surely not the drain plug. i have to repair the lower oil pan. i browsed over the maintenance manual site and it seems that the procedure needs to remove the whole crankcase to repair the lower oil pan. i just dont know if i could possibly just remove the lower oil pan without the crankcase for repair. is it possible?

I'm no diesel expert, but the steel pan should come off without messing with the lower crankcase. You might have to jack the engine up to get at some of the screws.
