SST stands for Special Service Tool. You can usually buy these tools on line of some of them at AutoZone
You will need to use the tool to take tnesion off the belt to replace. I suggest you either take a picture or draw how the belt is routed

NOTE: The A/C drive belt self tensioner is NOT a dynamic tensioner. After adjustment the tensioner bracket bolts are tightened. The torsion spring is no longer responsible for tensioning the A/C belt. The torsion spring is only used for initial belt tensioning.
Clean all foreign debris from belt pulley grooves. The belt pulleys must be free of oil, grease, and coolants before installing the drive belt.
Belt replacement under any or all of the following conditions is required:
NOTE: Do not use any type of belt dressing or restorer on Poly-V Belts. INSTALLATION

NOTE: A "used belt" is considered having more than 500 miles of service use. NOTE: Perform steps 1-7 to change the tensioner spring from the NEW belt position, to the USED belt position.

Faceing the Engine The Tentioner is on the LEFT side next Pulley Down from the Alternator , Use A Box end 6 point Wrench to Turn Tentioner To the Right (CLOCKWISE) to Loosen the Belt, Take A Good Look at it If there is No Belt Diagram to Remember the Way It is Routed if thats all you need then you R on your way. Good luck !

SOURCE: Adjust tension on fan belt
Your '90 Benz has a belt tensioner that is automatic. You just insert the correct tool to ease the tensioner pulley, (The tool is inserted into the bracket for the tensioner pulley), to the left as you're facing the car. Then slip your serpentine belt off. Reinstallation is a reversal of this process. (I believe it's to the left, don't quote me on that)
The radiator support in front, should have a diagram of how the serpentine belt goes on the pulleys.
If your serpentine belt slips, then the belt tensioner pulley assembly is bad, needs to be replaced, or the serpentine belt itself is worn out.
