I need to remove the crankshaft damper and the manual calls for a "detent"
tool [only available from MB for over $300] to lockdown the crank so the
front bolt can be loosened to remove the damper assembly.
Having not done this before, not being a mechanic, I still have enough
common sense to know that independent shops are not paying MB $300+ for
this simple widget.
How can said crank be locked down [automatic] w/o damaging anything,
including a wallet :-)
Again, appreciatively to all,
