1980 300D Remove the engine or just the oil pan?

Hi Everyone,
I just bought myself a 1980 300D 5cyl non turbo today. I did a little playing with it and got it to start but it has a bad knock. I need to get the oil pan off and take a look at what I have before I decide what I want to do next. Can I get the pan off without taking out the engine? Any suggestions on what to do and where to find more information would be great.

alldatadiy is garbage for just about any car I've ever looked at it for. You can get the same information from a cheap shopman CD for the same cost one time. Plus its actually written specifically for your car.

If you go to
its an online reference copy of the cheap shop manuals. You can get them for like $30 from some online places or on ebay.
