Towing W210 on dolly

What's the safe way to unhook the propeller shaft to tow a 210 with the back wheels on the ground?

Can the shaft be swung out of the way after unbolting the rear flex disk from the differential, or do I have to unbolt the center carrier bearing?

Should I unbolt both flex disks and the center bearing so I can take the whole shaft assembly out of the car?

Is there enough clearance

between the Rear Flex and the Differential ,if you loosen the BIG nut on the Propeller Shaft and SLIDE the rear of the prop shaft forward?
I'd go ahead and MARK all the Rear Flex Disc attachment Points and remove
the Flex disc Completely.

Unsolicited Personal Insight:

"Towing a Mercedes" on anything other than a 4 wheel trailer or a Flatbed Wrecker is endangering the MB.
