Hi Gav1n as Chris says there are only about 3 bolts and a main wiring plug to be removed and maybe one other wire but to gain access to it you will be better doing it from under the car at the rear of the engine, with regards to your pre-tensioner replacement i have never had to do mine or the starter for that matter so iam sorry i can't give you advice on it,on saying that if you are ordering a new one once you receive it just looking at it should give you some indication of how it fitted and removed,if not start a new thread and ask a new question iam sure there are members out there that do,hope this helps,cheers Donald
