Now that you've been given all of the scoop(poop), here is a tip from the Engine Electric Manual for the W124030 belt remove and replace.
After a specific engine number, you can swing the alternator, by loosening the mounting bolts and remove the belt.
Now aint that a kick?
If you haven't started yet, let me know the engine number or build date and I'll tell you if you've got the Brass Ring.
