I attached the info from the manual. I thought there may be pictures but Mercedes isn't big on detailed info.

Let us know if you need more info and we can search for some videos.

Can you find out the torque on the axle nut?

I am having some issue finding it because it doesn't call this out in the procedure and the manual only mentions the axle nut for the rear. I thought it was due to not being under 4matic but I am so I will have to keep digging.
