Replacing Front Flex Disk on 300E

I changed mine by placing a jack under the transmission, removing the trans mount and lowering the rear of the transmission a little
the flex disk didn't fall out but with a little coaxing with a long screwdriver it dropped out. The new one was relativly easy to put in and raising the trans as I put it in held it in place.
All totaled it took me about 1 1/2 hours to replace it. Just be carefull not to damage anything at the rear of the engine as you lower the trans. This was a couple of years ago but I don't think that I lowered it more than a couple of inches. Getting the bolts loose was the hardest part as they had sucked into the flexdisk
a little and were pretty chewed up. New bolts came with the Flexdisk I got from Fastlane.
