E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

install flex disc 26111225624

Is there an easy way to install flex disc. The manual says to take the drive shaft out first. Can the job be done by just unbolting and rebolting the disc?

You can try lowering trans support bracket about 1/2 way down. Then loosen the bolts that hold the flex disc. Next loosen the large nut in the center section of the driveshaft, this allows you to pry the forward section of the shaft back about a inch. Maybe neccessary to loosen center carrier bearing as well. After those procedures, I believe there will be enough room to replace the guibo without removing entire shaft.
