Default How to change rear decklid shocks on TT?

My buddy just bought a 97 993TT and his hood and decklid shocks need replacing. I've volunteered to do it if he just buy them. I've done a few non TT already with ease, but looks like the TT engine compartment has no room to squeeze my arm through. What do I have to take off? That's for the help.

Procedure is the same, but you're right, there's just less room

The rears are pretty easy, I thought the fronts were awful.

The fronts are trivial IF you have a very long thin flat blade screw driver.
I think I did the rears without removing the intercooler, but I lost a lot of epidermis.

Taking off the intercooler is really easy and fast. Don't forget to cover the intake opening... kinda nasty if you drop something down that hole.

This is another option to make the front easier.
