I can't answer that question, but I can say that with the earlier 
single-circuit arrangement only two of the bolts are accessed from the 
drivers footwell, the others are accessed from the engine bay.  Having said 
that those two are the most difficult to access being high up on the 
firewall!  The only saving grace for a LHD is that there may be less wiring 
in the way.  Good luck, it was a real struggle getting those out on mine a 
couple of years ago, let alone back in!  Kneeling on the ground and 
reaching in is the only way I could do it
