I believe the center bearing and support are the same between the 240D and 300D, so you could swap them. The difficulty I have always had is in getting the bearing/support assembly off in one piece. My puller tends to rip off the outer shell of the support first, then I have to go back and get a grip on the bearing itself. You'd have to have a way to grip the bearing directly, even with the larger support surrounding it.

Here's a fuzzy picture of the alignment marks. I haven't got the hang of close-up focusing yet: The two marks on the U-joint yoke are easy to see. The one mark on the wrench flat on the short driveshaft section is harder to see.
