really not much different than any other vehicle. probably easier than most america. just removed the two bolts on the front struts that connect to the spindle. then removed the top three or four. the rears are a little trickier. you need to lower the rear seats forward. then removed the panel that covers the speakers. then remove all bolts that hold the struts in the rear. also do you you have a strut compessor. if not you might be able to take it to a local shop and they can swap over the new struts.
