Battery replacement

I own a 1991 350SDL that has a dead battery (and is parked in my garage). I usually don't do repairs myself but thought how difficult could it be to replace the battery. (I have replaced batteries in other vehicles.) I purchased a new battery from the dealer, but am unsure how to remove the old battery. There aren't obvious clips/straps holding it in...but I cannot remove it.

Is this a difficult thing to do or should I just get it towed to the dealer?

Thanks for any advice.

Where are you?
Batteryreplacement is an easy mechanical job, but those things are heavy and clamps might be corroded.
MB USA roadside assistance will come over and replace it with no labor charge and they will sell you OEM battery. So what I heard.
