1988 Mercedes SLI560 transmission leak/question

I have aquired this car and I have a problem with the trans; the front seal is leaking. I know I will need to pull the trans down, but I need to know if there are any special tools required to change the seal. This will be my first time doing any kind of work on a mercedes but it shouldn't be a problem as long as it's the same as any other car by simply removing the converter and popping the seal out with a seal tool. Thanks in advance.

Also: I meant SEL not SLI, sorry guys.
