I was able to do mine without removing anything. My car is an '86 951. I replaced the compressor front seal. However the darn thing is leaking from the rear of the case now. It only holds a charge for a couple of days.

Putting the car on a lift and removing the compressor might make attaching the lines easier. The lines are very stiff, and by removing the compressor, you can rotate it, etc.
