The ABS is best left to pros.
The odometer is not stuck. The gears are broken. Replacement of the gears is a DIY. Here is a link with pictures.

560SL List Posted several years back!

Hope this helps.

Never replace just one. Replace them all. Brake Lines, Vaccuum hoses, Water hoses, fuel injectors etc.
