Exhaust manifold

I am trying to find a video or some pointers on removing the exhaust manifold from my 1978 MB 280se. It looks simple enough, but is there something I should be aware of?

Exhaust Manifold Removal

Just a word of caution - disconnect from the exhaust pipe first then disconnect manifolds from the engine block - they are tough but brittle - shop manual says to attach the exhaust system as the last step when repairing the exhaust system - AUSPUF Shop in Germany fractured my back exhaust manifold by not following the shop manual and being too aggressive(ie. big hammer) when they installed the new exhaust system.
