Based on what you've outlined as your experiences, I would strongly suggest you back away from the idea that you can pull, disassemble, re-build and re-install a Mercedes automatic transmission.
This is not a job for a novice. Nothing you've done comes close to taking on a job like this, much less the tools needed to do it.
Save yourself time and money in the long run and have this job done by someone experienced in MB transmissions. Another way to approach this would be to purchase an remanufactured unit, send in your old one for the core charge and then you'd only be dealing with the R/R part, which isn't easy at all.
