I did not DIY! Saw my tech do it:

lowered exhaust/supported, removed both axle halves, BIG MB air driven puller for wheel hubs, another smaller MB to press out bearing once hub is off. Had to use this tool two ways; one to pull 1/2 of bearing out then rearrange tool and then push out other 1/2 of bearing from back side of wheel carrier. Tight, had to really use force. Paid $500.00+ for both rear wheel bearing kits plus rear wheel alignment.

Not a job for the driveway and you need these special tools to do it right, plus expect stuck/seized parts.

The W124 rear wheel bearings are the hardest wheel bearing job of all the MB cars according to my tech.
