I will remove the front struts by removing 2 upper bolts on each side of the car under the plastic caps which are glued to the body.

In this picture, how can I remove the bolt under the ABS line? [wrench]

Its behind the Coolant tank, right after the firewall.

I think I just used a u-joint to get around it, and an extension. I don't remember it being a major obstacle.

i just put the socket on the bolt without a ratchet or extension... then put the extension through and kinda pushed my way around those lines...

Removing that cap from there is a PITA of its own. I'll try to get this bolt out I guess w/o demaging the brake line. Has to be a really flat socket.
