well you want to get a spark plug boot puller. they sell one here in the partsshop or fastlane.

I am not sure on the antiseize, but I always oil the threads lightly on the plugs in my cars, but I have not changed the plugs on the benz yet.

Generally I try to change the plugs when the engine is not hot enough to burn me. Cold or hot I don't know if it makes a difference, I've changed plugs on a cold engine and a hot engine, I don't think it makes a difference, but I havent done it to my benz yet.

Other than the usual plug tools, the spark plug boot puller is key. you can pull the wires out of the boots very easily if not done right.

The usual tools would include: ratchet, spark plug socket for the plugs, various sized extensions, a wobbler or angle attachment for those very hard to reach areas.

Othe than that, I think it will not be different than changing them on another car.

I'm not a tech, its just my opinion on it.
