I undid mine on one side recently while replacing the rear wheel bearing on my 87 300TD and also had to play with them. One little trick that I found was using a #2 or #3 phillips head screw driver was very useful to remove and install the little spring clamps that hold the shoes against the backing plate. These are the little 1/4 turn doo dads. I also put a little antisieze unsre the spring to ease the installation. MB makes a special tool for this, but the screw driver worked fine!
