Camshaft Seals

Can someone please give me any ideas/how to/dos and doníts on replacing the Camshaft seals on my 1993 W140 Engine is 119.971.

I have checked the forum and I read people do it both ways, I would like to do it with out messing with the cam or cam covers if at all possible.

I also read I need some special paste, is that true? or just put oil on it before I slip it in?

The seal is leaking into my rotor and cap and I thought it is a good idea to replace while I am doing the tune-up on the car.

Thanks for any responses in advance.
