Be careful when undoing the top mount bolts (13mm).
If they haven't been changed before there'll be lots of rusty crud on the underside, if they get a bit tight whilst undoing, squirt some penetrating oil on them, then tighten them up a bit - until they get easy to turn, then undo a bit moe until they get tight again, and repeat procedure.
If you don't do the above, you are in danger of breaking the captive nut free on the underside of the top mount.
you'll need 15mm and 17mm sockets and spanners to undo the strut mounting bolts, clean the threads and oil first before undoing.
think strut top bolt is 18mm.
i normally remove the strut top bolt, then put back on loosely, then remove struts and springs complete.
Then take springs off.
