Question 107 steering coupling

Hi. I'm new to this site and have learned alot from the experiences of others. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. My steering was loose so I replaced A drag link on my 1982 380sl. It was worn, but after I finished the steering was still loose. So had my son move the steering wheel while i was underneath(the car was jacked and blocked up 3 ways-still kind of scary)and I found my real problem was the steering coupling is very worn. My CD manual doesn't tell me how to replace this. It looks like you have to either remove the steering gearbox or the steering shaft to replace the coupling. Any advice would be helpful. BTW, I ordered the part on-line at www.*************** for $57.00 +free shipping for orders over $50.00. The dealer wanted $148.00 plus the gold fillings in my teeth. It pays to shop around.
