HiCustomer you'll need to remove the steering knuckle and press out the bearing. The Mercedes procedure requires many special tools to remove and install the bearing but any machine shop can do it on a hydraulic press. I've attached the instructions below. Let me know if you have any questions.

Wow! Someone told me replacing the bearing would be rather simple. Are there any instructions or additional diagrams other than the manual that might be helpful.

Hi Marty
Guessed I missed you for the night. Don't kow if you got my follow up question so here it is again...

Good morningCustomer the job is very simple it's just a lot of work. There's nothing technical about it. Tell me what else you'd like to see that might help you and I'll see what I can find. If you've not done heavy front end work before you might be better off to leave it to a repair shop.

Thanks Marty

The mechanic said it is what he needs to complete the job. Also thank you for sending the additional info on the steering knuckle and machine shop for hydraulic press. Other than taking my car to Mercedes (OUCH!) for repair, I was hard pressed for information on how to get the job done. Not many options here in Alaska. Thanks again Marty.
