Angry Radiator replacement help needed - C280

My radiator on my 94 C280 went out today. I noticed that coolant was leaking over the last day or so and this afternoon, while passing this minivan that was trying to make an illegal left turn, steam started to pour out from under the hood. I pulled over quickly and popped the hood. The upper radiator hose was completely disconnected - the plastic mounting ring had broken off. This reminded me of the same problem I had with my old 190e.

Anyway, now my car is out of commission - I had it towed back to my parking space. Does anyone know the procedure for replacing the radiator? Has anyone had a similar problem?

Thanks for the help!
