The short answer: No.

The long answer: AFS does not "share" a disk/volume like SMB, CIFFS or
NFS. It maintains its data in a kind of black-box structure. The only
reasonable way to get this data is via AFS-fileserver. Direct accessing
those data is possible, but does not make any sense (except for
debugging or crash recovery).
