Hello,
I have a 2002 E-320 4matic and about 88000 miles,
How do I get the metal covers off of the spark plugs?
Is this going to require a special service tool? Any advice greatly appreciated!
Thank You!

You just gotta yank on them (not the wires - the connectors). MB has a 17 mm wrench that was originally designed for another purpose (I forget what) that made a perfect tool for taking them off. It then became the official tool for it. I usually use a prybar on the top edge and support the bottom of it with my finger to pry it off without breaking the spark plug.

Zewerr,
Thank you for your reply, do I need to do anything special in reinstalling the plug wire? or anything else for that matter (anything special that is).
Thanks again for your time.
