front flex disc Milano replacement? How?

How is the front flex disc replaced in a Milano? The access hole beneath the bell housing seems too small to squeeze a disc into there.

The tailshaft needs to be removed. The coupling has to be slid off the bolts in the flywheel.

There is a pinch bolt you can get to in the access hole. As Duk says, if you unbolt the rear and the center support you can slide the driveshaft out, it may require some persuasion depending on when the last time it came out was (I used a plastic dead blow hammer).

At least you don't have to pull the engine if you need to change the rear main seal.

Might as well replace them all when you're there. 10 years peace of mind.
