Replacing Rod Bearings

We are planning on replacing a supposed bad or spun rod bearing in a 1997 Prelude with an H22 motor, and we are wondering if we can just pull the oil pan, pull the caps and replace the bearings and we'll be good to go, or is there more to it than that?
is the oil pan pretty self explanatory or do you need to pull the motor?

Thanks in advance!

PS: Sorry, I'm not a honda owner(except for this Prelude)

Re: Replacing Rod Bearings

you can just pull the pan off, when you do make sure the crank and the rods are in good shape you dont to keep replacing the bearings, dont forget to drain the oil

i dont think he is worrying about clearances.... lol

okay, you can just pull the pan replace the shredded bearing and maybe your motor could run but... that is the absolute ghetto and cheap way to get a motor to run... problem is for how long??? you spun a bearing.. you now have the metal from that bearing in the oil...which has been probably spread through your entire motor. NOT GOOD.... my suggestion ... it would have to be torn down... cleaned... and check everything else making sure nothing else was destroyed from the metal shavings. your crank is most definitely chewed up where that bearing sat. well good luck in whatever you do...
