Remember the floor doesn't come off on the S2 like the S3 so I think you HAVE to take it off. Happy to be corrected as have never done it myself.

Me and the lad took it out in 4 hours - all in one piece (we had the head off already):

Note the safety footware and Lotus-approved engine stand... :D

The manual explains the way to do it very well (got a book?). Good luck! - post picies

Don't forget, Steve, they come out from underneath the car, i.e. you lift the car off them so you may as well take them both out. Mind you, from your avatar it looks extremely clean already.
