Little late on this... but yes, removing the four 13mm strut bar bolts is easier. You can all so move the rubber seal to make it a straight shot to get to the screws. @ least thats how I do it.

 & as far as all these 120k'ish t-belt breaks.... has anyone ever thought that the breaks were caused by not replaceing the friction pad during the second belt change?
 I change the friction pad every timing belt I've ever done... even if the thing looks brand new.
