1995 E300D transmission rear seal

The flex disc bolts on front disc got worn out - it was clunking - and also the seal started to leak (which I believe was caused by the driveshaft wobbling) - Ive searched and found that I need a 30mm extra deep socket.. Firstly I have no idea where to buy it from.

Secondly when I unscrew the nut from the yoke - should I just rely on the parking pawl to counterhold it and does the yoke itself come out easily?

I just do not want to get stuck midway in work - if I need a puller or something else.

You should be able to purchase the required socket from Sears, Snap On or such as that. It is a straight forward job to replace the transmission output shaft seal. The park paw will hold it. The yoke comes out easily. Don't remember the size but 30mm does sound kinda big.
