I did my 2001 Outback and just had to take the bolts out of the covers after removing the air intake thing and the baterry and collent bottle to get at everything , the two bottom bolts are hard to get at because the crossmember is in the way but a little patience and it can be done ( I am not sure if your vechicle is the same as my outback , be careful putting the bolts back in they are not all the same size ( don't ask me how i know LOL
excuse my roten spelling i didn't check it before i posted it sorry
