If you're prepared to buy the bolt that secures the wishbone to the upper mounting it can be a really easy job.
Remove the wheel and peer up into the arch, look at the orientation of the long bolt around which the wishbone rotates, if the head of the bolt is on the outer side of the wishbone you're in luck, remove the wheel arch lining, split the balljoint, undo the bolt, there should be enough room to slide the bolt out and with it the wishbone.
Some 156s I believe have some sort of cannister mounted in the wing that needs to be unbolted give the room but it's no big deal.
What's more likely is that the bolt will be the other way round as that's how they left the factory, it's been mentioned previously in the forum that with the nut removed there's room to tap the bolt towards the inner wing, and either grind or hacksaw the head off the bolt, then pull it back the other way. Obviously you'll need new bolts but it does make the job easy.
If you don't fancy that then the guide linked to above is the way to do it.
All the best
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
