My 190E failed inspection today !

Oh no The 190E failed its yearly state inspection today with a bad front flex joint. The mechanic is going to fix it for me next week & is letting me get the parts. What all will I need to do this job right ? ( Im going to also do the rear joint) & how much labor time am I looking at ?

You'll need a Flex Disc (stay Well away from URO there are horror stories) I dont know if the bolts are re-useable. someone will chime in on that I'm fairly sure they are though... Jacks Jack stands and patience. if you are doing it yourself, make sure you orient the disc the right way

New bolts come with the new flex disc. Where do you live, that they looked at your drive shaft?

Here in CT, they just check lights, emmissions out the tail pipe, and test the gas cap.

LEMFOERDER Drive Shaft Flex Joint - W/ Mounting Hardware,W0133-1610969 - PeachParts

Looks like it comes with bolts:
The picture shown is for the front flex disk, note the oblong metal bolt rings. The rear flex disk has circular rings. I did this job not too long ago, you are going to have to jack up the rear wheels, chock the fronts and release the e-brake and put the car in neutral so that you can turn the drive shaft to access all the bolts to unloosen them. The nuts are self-locking nuts so you will need to use a ratchet and a wrench to hold the other end as you unloosen. I think you will need a 17mm for 3 of the bolts, and a 7mm (or 5mm) allen key for the other 3. The flex disk will have some wording in German on it, make sure the wording faces away from the transmission, or towards the exhausts outlet. The job is pretty simple, all you need to remove is the cross member.....however if I were you I would also replace the transmission mount while you're under there since the cross member needs to come off. Replacing the mount will only take 5 minutes.

The rear flex disks generally last two or three times the front disk, so don't spend the money unless you know it needs to be done. It doesn't wear because there isn't as much lateral movement at the differential. Most of the vibrations and movement and taken up at the front disk.
