Takes longer to get the scuttle panel off than to change the springs

Agreed matt. Will take him longer to drive to yours than fit the springs. I'd be willing to assist if you require, or just admire boothy's car and rear lights.

Re: Will someone pleeeease...

If you have another pair of hands you dont really need to pull the wipers as you can just hold the panel up out of the way while you undo the top mount.
