Cool 1997 E420 Ticking noise from engine

I heard this could be clogged cam oilers. Does anyone know how difficult this is to replace?? Any step by step guides or anything? Also, if anyone has an opinion on this, should i take it to a certified benz mechanic or would any shop with a decent reputation be able to handle the job?

Hope its not your cat. If it sound like its coming from the muffler area, It could be one of the heat sheilds, or regretfully the catalytic converter which I hear is expensive. Had mine done last week for free, luckily Mercedes covers it for 8yrs or 80,000 miles. Good luck.
