Hey guys! I’m trying to take the front tire off the front of my 1982 200E and I can’t figure it out! I just want to change the brakes and paint the rim! Waiting on the manual to come in the mail before I really make a mess and can’t fix it!!! Thanks

You've pretty much got it, you just need to gently tap the axle out. A hammer and a wooden dowel just a little smaller than the axle works great but I've done it with a hammer and a long screwdriver before in a pinch, just be careful!

Look under the axle housing on the left side(pic. 1 ) and you will find a small clip. Try prying that clip up/open and see what happens. PB Blaster for several days in a row may also help. They tend to get rusted bad and takes allot of pounding. Also put a nut on that axle to save the threads.

I have a large lead head hammer I use.  Some of them...you just gotta spray 'em down with penetrating oil and whoop the sheet out of 'em.  

Just do not ever use anything hard or you'll ruin the threads.

VilliageI-(not so much an idiot)Idiot is absolutely dead on.....And about that small clip it is rarely brought up but if you look closely at the axle after it is removed you will notice a small manufactured small groove that that pin rides on and is just enough to make removal hard.
