Easy.. Remove the trim above the rear side windows. Prop the hatch up
with something, and then unclip the old ones and install the new.
I used some aftermarket ones, which only have one problem: I think
the originals had some built-in damping to slow the opening rate, The
new ones let the hatch rise very quickly, so you have to keep it under
control and not just lift and let go.
