Driveshaft Flexible Coupling
I am changing the front flexible coupling on the driveshaft of my 1992 300E auto. I have removed the 6 coupling nuts and bolts, the heat shield over the driveshaft, loosened the compression nut on the driveshaft splined joint and disconnected the centre bearing support. The front end of the driveshaft will not slide back to give clearance for the removal of the flexible joint. Am I doing something wrong or does it just need more force?
