How difficult is it to replace a Thruster Arm?

Just bought my first Mercedes, an '04 E320 wagon. Pre purchase inspection turned up a worn Thruster Armand the dealer wants $600 to replace.

Does anyone know how difficult it is to replace and if it requires any specialized tools? Also approximate cost and best way to source the parts?

I'm fairly good at mechanical things, but don't have any specialized tools. But, recently purchased a compressor with basics and coul get wrenches, etc. Also, the car has 101,000 miles and is in great shape and want to make sure it stays that way even if I have the work done.

There are many other things I want to do like connect a sat radio to the cmd center, improve performance and more. Really glad I found this forum; the enthusiasm and information shared here helped me decide to buy the E.
