What chassis is this on? To answer your question, yes, let a co-worker do the job. Actually, both sides are a PITA, no matter which chassis you're dealing with. No real secrets, but the biggest problem might be getting the broken studs out. If it's a WK, you might try removing the plastic inner fender well. It doesn't help much, but does a little. Also, moving all the electrical stuff in the engine compartment (FCM and Fuse Panel) gives you a little more room to work. Best to just take your time, and try not to swear too much.
