You can get @ the rod bearings when the oil pan has been removed, I think you have to lift the engine up but you won't be able to remove the pistons from below. The pistons will need to be retrieved from the top end. I don't know what the procedure is on a MB diesel but I've always removed the engine to do major repairs such as this.
