Driveshaft eek-a-eek-a-eek

Center support bearing.

Ahhh did my 300cd last summer.

Never even looked at the sdl yet.

In prep for this, same??

Drop the back half - slip it out - etc.

Any advice to save time as time is limited.

One nice tool I find to get into the flex disc's is an air ratchet. break them all loose w/ a wrnch, but the air ratchet(not impact gun) really makes it a quick job.

I had to do mine twice, as the shop I PAYED to install the first one messed it up, only went a few K's. the second time around I was at home w/ my air ratchet, very quick job.

Order in the metal washer sheild thingys front and rear, too. I am pretty sure that is why mine failed- the sheild wore thru the seal.
