"1990 - 2011 Mercedes General Overview
Application Notes
Remco has a limitied ability to make drive shafts for some 2 wheel drive sedans. NO COUPES. See ML320 & ML430 SUV for LP kits. Call Remco with year and model to see if a kit is available for your specific sedan. Drive shaft kits, if available are specical order and good take 2 to 4 weeks."

That is from the Remco Application Charts, available on the Remco website.
Other than that, look in the Owners Manual for your vehicle.
Note: If it is rear wheel drive, and can't be flat towed, it can't be dolly towed either, without modification.
Good luck.

Thanks mowermech. Doesn't look like it but I might call Remco in the morning to be sure.

You might have to tow it on a small trailer. There are always options.
