Assuming you can safely jack and support vehicle, and posses 1/2 in breaker bar , or pneumatic tools, , I recently replaced mine 2008 E 350, without removing rotors. I just used a 10" file to de-burr the lip of rotor and remove rust. I had over 100,000 miles on the fronts and one side was just starting to make noise. Just be careful not to damage the sensor wiring , and it is a little difficult to get the actuator returned to starting position, but I did it with a #1flat screwdriver, thru the notch that's in the brake pad. Try to get it started moving back before removing old pad set. Make sure the caliper assembly floats properly and centers itself, look at your pad wear for clues to sticking assembly. I think it's a good idea to bleed brakes at this time if you are due. I did not , now I'm getting ready to do that next.
