I'm getting ready to replace both the front and rear flexible discs on my 1980 450SEL (116). Yep after 20 years and 135k miles it's time.
The chassis manual has me releasing the two large nuts (45mm and 41mm) prior to doing so. I recall several posts were folks simply used a pry bar to R&R the discs.
Those with some experience I sure would appreciate your sage advice and counsel. I do have access to a lift, but not the large wrenches/crows foot.
