Question 280SE 1983 idle speed adjustment

Just got my 1983 280SE back from the shop after major service (I have had the car two weeks) and notice the idle speed is a little low: ie. it stalls nearly everytime you come to a complete halt unless you leave your foot on the throttle.

Is it easy to bump up the idle speed by a 50 - 100 rpm (that's all it needs to idle smoothly and not stall) or should I really run it back to the shop for them to look at again?

This is my first MB and, while I was quite happy adjusting SUs on old Rover V8s, I have never fiddled with a fuel injected car before.
