Did my rear shocks and springs on 2001 lag 1.9 DCI, top bolts flew out, springs fell out, by now i was thinking piece of cake then bottom bolts flew out then came the sticky bit, the bottom steel sleeve on both shocks would not move one bit, loads of releasing agent a 2lb hammer and a 3ft long piece of 4"x4" wood done nowt but destroy the shocks, in end had to go and get some heat and eventually they came off, so if yours were a piece of cake count yourself very lucky, on the plus side it flew back together in about 15 minutes back on its wheels.
