you can heard how loud it is in my video here (the high pitch grind) YouTube - C32 with Weltmeister exhaust
here is also a DIY by another member on mbworld. Replaced SC Clutch bearing last night ~ pics/video - MBWorld.org Forums
Ya that's it. Dude, it's guys like you that make these blogs worthwile. If that's what wrong with mine, which I'm 99.9% sure, after your feedback and subsequent repairs you did, I'm stoked. You mentioned that you had a service shop do the job for you earlier in this string. I'm in the OC and you're in Ontario. I'll go wherever to get it done....well.......as long as it's not Ontario, Canada. Just let me know where you went. The reason I'd go to your guy is that he's done it already. Again dude...I'm stoked. Thanks in advance.
