I did it myself before with the clam off, but need it doing now at short notice with the clam on.  I assume access is from below and above but my question is, is access  also (essential?) required from the rear offside wheel arch (can't actually picture it in my head). 
The reason I ask is the charge cooler plumbing might be an issue if this is the case.  Just exploring options and potential problems because the time scale for fitting it in is tight and I don't want any issues.  Obviously a water pump change at the same time.

Thanks, I did do a search and didn't find that.  Charge cooler pipework may therefore present a small problem with access.  Forewarned is forearmed. thumbsup  I'm planning a three week Eurotrip very shortly -France - Germany - Switzerland - Austria and Italy, and, the time since my last cambelt change started nagging on me so decided, with very short time left to have it changed, but no time to do it myself.

Wheel arch liner definitely needs to come out otherwise I’ve changed mine a couple of times with everything else in place inc chargecooler hoses.
