Default Best way to replace ac compressor

Hi all,

I have a 2002 Pt Cruiser limited edition and have a quick questions about installing a new ac compressor. I've crawled under the car and tried to find the best way to get to the compressor. It seems the best way and to have the most room to take off the old compressor is to remove the front bumper cover. Is this necessary or can I get away with something else? I've removed the right front wheel and splash guard and I can see, feel, and touch the compressor but it still seems hard to get to all the bolts.

-Before anyone jumps on me for not searching I've gone through just about every thread on ac compressor replacement and everywhere in between but nobody really says how to get to it except through the from right wheel well. I was just wondering is taking off the front bumper better and will I be able to get to the compressor better than I can going through the wheel well.
