2001 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Question: Driveshaft flex disc
Hi, I inspected the flex disc by grasping the driveshaft and tried forcing it to flex, I felt no detectable play in the flex disc. Is there another way to inspect flex disc, short of removing it? When I researched the part, there was a mention of front and rear flex disc. Last, would you recommend changing the support bearing if my flex disc are found to be worn? I noticed the light vibration to be under my console area, which suggest flex disc play or is this another problem. Any help or ideas are appreciated, thanks. - jpmc86
