You don't have to do that on LHD cars, but you do need to move a fair
bit of stuff out of the way. I've never done one, but from what I've
heard, you don't have to disconnect any brake lines, but do have to push
the master cylinder and ABS unit out of the way, bending brake lines
(carefully of course). The Volvo approved method is disconnecting and
removing these components first. And of course the bar that goes from
strut to strut needs to be removed first.
