Thanks, but I'm aware of that. I replaced my own. What I meant was NOT that the driveshaft must be removed, but that when you loosen the driveshaft (to give it wiggle room) and then disengage the spline (male part) from the female part, that the tranny end and the rear piece of the drive shaft can rotate independently.
I am saying that it may have rotated and, therefore, be misaligned.
Of course, I am speaking of a 190.
