560 sel Ignition Coil location

I've got an 88 560SEL. The car will crank but not start. After reading through the forums and doing a little poking around, I suspect the problem is the ignition coil. I've got the service manual CD, but I have been unable to locate the ignition coil. Can someone post a pic or some directions on where it is? Thanks!

It's mounted on the left inner fender towards the front. If you follow the plug wire in the middle of the ignition distributor, it should lead you to it. If it does not, then you know what the problem is

With best regards
