If there is a pin holding the Rope type seal in this tool will not work but it is something that I used over 20 years ago.
To remove and install the upper rope type main bearing seal:
Sneaky Pete Oil Seal Remover / Installer Features: Removes & installs upper rear
main seals without dropping crankshaft. Includes everything needed

http://www.amazon.com/Sneaky-Pete-Se.../dp/B000X01ZJM

I used a similar product 1 time on a 235 chevy engine with a rope type rear main seal and it worked the 1 time I did it. Also, I did the while the engine was still in the Pick Up Truck.

If you think the Rope type rear main seal is out of date; my Volvo has a lip type rear main seal. If it leaks you have to remove the transmission, clutch and flywheel to change the seal.

The OM61x series has been around since 1968 with little more than the injection pump, glowplugs, oil filter housing, bore/stroke and an extra cylinder changed.

I am not knocking the Rope seal. On my old truck I was able to change the rope seal by removing the pan and Rear Main Bearing cap. My point was that changing the rope seal was easier than changing the lip seal on the Volvo and haveing to pull the Transmission, Clutch and Flywheel.

In that case i would agree it may have been smart thinking on mercedes part, if your doing incar overhauls that would allow you to keep everything inside (engine and tranny)
