Question How Do You Change Plugs In MB C230

Is there a simple way to change the plug in the MB C230. The difficult part is taking off the plugs. Can someone help with the instructions

How is taking off the plugs difficult? Since the newer engines didn't use distributors, there is either a coil pack on the spark plug, or a coil pack with a wire that attaches to the spark plug.
Gilly or Steve should know.

nthach,
the problem is I took off the cover of the plug area exposing the wires to the plug but don't know if to yank the wires out orto use special tools. If I can get the wires out I can get the plugs out. Am I supposed to just pull the wires out?

Depending on how small the opening is, you can get away with spark plug boot pliers, http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/pro_det.asp?tool=all&item_ID=10805&group_ID=1351&store=snapon-store&dir=catalog
but there are others, but $20 isn't a bad price.
