Help Knocking on a 147 motor

Hello all Jonathan here again, I sent my car in a few months ago to have the motor repaired , rings ,crank and head had to be done (Anonymous mechanic, waited 2 months for my car). But I have only put 3000 km on my 147 and it started making a knocking sound coming from the motor.

Well I went to a Alfa Dealer and asked What it could be, they said it might be a crank shaft bearing Haha !!! So they advised me not to drive my car any further.

Is it possible to fix the crank from the bottom of my car without taking out the motor or am I going to have to take out the motor from the top to do the bearings???

Any help or advice for I am going to have to do this on my own, Can’t afford a Mechanic again!!!
