auto's can't hit lift...so why worry?
Are you being sarcastic?
Anyways, autos can hit lift just like manuals, they just can't land in it. The bolts will wear, regardless of if you hit lift or not.
All you have to do to replace them is take off the valve cover, and unscrew the two bolts, and swap the new ones in. Easy as pie, unless you don't know what you are doing.
There is an online install guide, but I don't feel like looking for it right now.
This is also covered under warranty.
