My dealer told me my front flex disk is bad and need to be replaced soon. They quoted me $470. is this a DIY job? i see the bolts are easy to get to. I guess my question is once the bolts removed can the drive shaft moved back freely?
thank you Klinh, is the drive shaft easy to move back?I've never to replaced the flex disc on my Mercedes but has done a couple on M3. Since it German car, it pretty much the same design (just guessing). It was very easy to do. You need to remove some heatshield to get to the drive shaft. You also need to jack up the rear of the car and tranny in neutral so you can spin the drive shaft to get to all the flex disc bolts.
