    I am guessing this is much easier on a standard pre facelift ?

    it certainly is...you can get in much easier on the pre-facelift...it's a bit of a fiddle on the drivers side, but you can hold a dance behind the passengers side lamp..

    yes, was easy, given the fact that you can't see a thing
