Spun a rod bearing

I jut had a spun rod bearing on cylinder 8 on my 00 gt and I was wondering if I can take it out on the bottom of the engine.
It barely started ticking

You'll have to drop the K to get the pan off but once the pan is off you can do it... I honestly would just find a cheap PI pullout from a JY and swap the whole motor though, you never know what that spun bearing did to the crank.
