Mercedes Tools Set

I want to change my spark plugs, but I don't have the tools set that came with my car, i think my mechanic took it when I got a oil change.

How much does a tool set cost, or what other options do i have?

I have a 87' 300e

You might want to try a junk yard. Typically the tool kits are still in the trunk, often never used.

You can order it through your local dealer, the last time I checked they were about $85 if I recall correctly.

I could be wrong on this, but i don't believe there are tools included which would help you change the spark plugs. Just enough to help change a tire. If there is anything beyond the lug wrench, it would be just a reversible blade screwdriver and maybe a pliers. It would have been rolled up in a dark red canvas bag.
Another option you have, if you feel the mechanic took it, is to ask for it back, but why a mechanic would be compelled to steal from his customer is beyond me. And if he did steal it, and gives it back, or at least admits to it, i'd find a different mechanic. What sort of mechanic would take the tool kit? What are you supposed to change the tire with, your teeth?

True, he should buy the tools for changing the plugs, etc, but I would normally be happy with the knowledge I could at least change the tire with the factory toolkit. I'd be really mad at a tech who would take the tools if that's what happened.
