I'll be finding out how to do this in a S124 shortly -- I suspect the proper way is to take down the center bearing after removing the bolts on the flex disk (front) -- should just give enough clearance to remove/replace the disk.
I agree. If you do not take down the center bearing, the rubber support around the center bearing may break when you try to move the shaft forward during the process of disconnecting the rear flex disk. When it breaks, you will feel and hear the bearing hammering the floor board few times during acceleration.
