It's completely different, but actually a lot easier than a Jetta.
On the fronts, you disconnect the strut from the hub carrier and anti-roll bar at the bottom, and undo the four M8 nuts on the top mount and the whole assembly drops out.
The back is similar at the bottom, but at the top there are four M10x25 bolts that attach the assembly to the subframe, which is a little difficult to access, but not too problematic.
Getting the coils of the dampers is a royal PITA. You need a serious spring compressor.
