You need to remove the rear seat's side bolster. From memory it's attached with a bolt at the bottom, somewhere under the side of the seat.

No worries! Those boot lids are heavier than you think hey. Might help to have someone hold the boot for you to get it on.

I have replaced the boot struts in our NF Fairlane today, first remove the rear seat from the floor this gives access to the bottom bolt on the bolsters on each outer side of seat back. fold the seats down, on the striker pin of each seat latch is a round plastic trim washer, this washer has a square hole in it, rotate the trim washer to align with the square section on the striker pin and pull it off. The bolsters lift up and they are off. This gives easy access to ball end of the boot struts. Hope this helps.
