Sorry this isnt the best tutorial made but i tried :D
Panels where not removed because i just finshed putting the rear back togther after installing suspension.

Step 1
Remove the bottom back seat by pulling up its on two clips. and remove from car.

Step 2
drop the two back seats, under the cover there are 4 bolts total you will need to remove. 12mm. unscrew them and pull out the seats

Step 3
After locate the handle. take off the top cover and bottom there are two bolts 10mm and screw them and pull it off
Image

Step 4
Pull the paneling off dont worry cant brake anything maybe will lose a couple plastic clips. do that two both sides. and remove from the car

Step 5
Now undo the window cover. that is covering the seat belt and the hanger. you will find a screw where the hanger is and a bolt where the seat belt is Unscrew both and let the seat belt hang down. Out off your way
Image

Step 6
Then pull it off now be careful the panal goes to the rear deck so you pull it off and push up to get it free. Do the same on the other side. Remove that from car .

Step 7
Now locate the three clips on the rear deck. remove the plastic covers. covering the bolts under it. Unscrew the three bolts. Do not remove panal yet.
Image

Step 8
Now locate the black cover that has About 5 clips on it remove every clip. and pull the backing towards you. Remove that from the car
Image

Step 9
Now Pull the rear deck that you unscrewed in step 7 and pull it towards you. then push it down where the black cover was. so you have room to work

Step 10
Now the struts/springs are locate in the corners of each side. they are covered with some sound proof material. just pull that back. and you will see the 3 struts bolts sticking out

Step 11
Put everything back . (in a backwards order)
black backing, then rear deck then side window panels, then lower panal. the the back seats. then bottom back seat.

Hope this helps

SO i am guessing that you can install the springs by your self can you? I was talking with this one mechanic and he said u needed something to suppress the springs before installing.
