I agree. If you don't have to take the crank bolt off, then don't. I guess some of the cars have dampers that can be "walked" off with the six bolts removed. Unfortunately, my 400E wasn't one of them. Once I loosened all but two of the water pump bolts, I realized that I was in too far to close it back up. By the way, if you are forced to do the main seal, the hub slid right back in the slot after I heated it for a few minutes with a blow torch to expand the aluminum.
1993 400E, 256,000 miles (totaled)
1994 E420, 200,000+ miles
1995 E420, 201,000 miles
