RE: SLC, Rear Window Removal. Difficulty?
Unless you've done this a lot, I've found that for windshield/rear window removal, it's usually worth it to farm the job out to a professional. The cost isn't that high, and the glass shops have the proper tools and expertise to get the job done right. Plus, if there are leaks afterwards, you have someone that you can "poke in the chest" until it's fixed.
I've used places like Binswanger and Safelite to replace both the windshield and rear windows on an old MGB and a vintage Dodge Charger with no problems. If the factory rear window seal is still available from MB, I'd recommend buying it ahead of time and giving it to the installer, since otherwise, they may use an aftermarket seal that may not fit as well as the original.
