As preparation of refrshing the front suspension, I bought the special tool to press out (and in) the ball joints which are housed in the knuckle on the W211/W219 platform.
Bought a special tool, which is particularly handy when replacing the engine mounts on a CLS55 W219 or E55 W211. The exhaust manifold takes a fair bit of space on each side of the engine and there is where this tool comes in handy with removing the bolt which sits directly under the exhaust manifold (on each side).
Bought it from eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/125234922812

Finally did a replacement which was on my list for a long time. I replaced the old fuel pump with a new unit from Meat&Doria.
I needed to wait for the Fuel Ring Locking Ring Tool before I was able to continue as the rings (2!) sit very tight.
Car feels like new again!
