I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?

Hello,
Standard work time for replacing discs in front is 1 hour and in the rear- 1,3 hours for MB mechanic.
If discs are not seized on the hubs, only prescribed special tool is the caliper piston resetting device.Otherwise some disc hammering skills will be needed to get them off without damage
