I agree with everything in this video, also I found a set of ICON stubby metric ratcheting wrenches that includes a 16mm for the top bolt, saves a ton of time once the top bolt is loosened with the special tool shown.

In order to support the engine, Mercedes specifies a lifting device that rests on the fender tops and front cross member. I found this one works well and I've used it to replace two sets of engine mounts on my W221 and a set on my W212.

As the guy in the video says, you really need to be able to get enough clearance to get the new mounts in. BTW, there's no way you'd catch me doing this in cold of winter outside. Might be a good call to take it to your Indy for the engine mount swap.
