www.Autozone.com has an online manual for your car, see this link:
You may need some metric crows feet line wrenches.
[b]To remove the line fittings from the R&P assembly sometimes requires a crowsfoot wrench or a stubby open end wrench. And then try to access the fittings from different positions. But to be honest, some can be a real bear to get to.
Once the new R&P is installed, prior to bolting it into position, get the line fittings started first. Less chance of cross-threading the fittings into the R&P assembly.
