I just went through this with my Toyota Camry. Apparently, it is easier and more economical to buy a half axle for that car than to try and replace the boot. I was told that the axle has to be broken apart, the old boot removed, and put back together before you can re-fit the new boot. There is also the chance that the CV joint will be damaged when you do this and that it was compromised by exposure to the elements and lack of grease. Mercedes could be entirely different, but I hope this helps. Lastly, there are good and bad aftermarket parts so if you take that route, research your sources carefully. Good luck.
