These can be real tempermental so I recomend and have done it this way professionally, pull up on the belt as hard as you can and pull towards you. Make note of the routing before you remove the belt as these can be tough to remember. I start at the power steering pump which is on the driver's side and pull. When you install the belt (in the same fashion) locate the writing on the belt and make sure that installed that you can read it like holding a book in your hand. If it is upside down you may get squeels and squeeks even on a new belt. The reason it is done this way even by Mercedes techs is because the tensioner that is used has a very thin adjuster rod in the back of the unit and usually breaks when turned. Once that breaks, you are looking at replacing the entire tensioner ($200 - $300). Not worth it!! Let me know if you need anything else.
