'85 300TD replacement of rear struts

I am preparing to replace the rear struts on my recently acquired 300TD (self leveling rear suspension) and have a couple questions. In reading the manual it looks like the rear seat (middle row) has to come out to access the fasteners for the top of the struts and the hose connection. Is this correct? Also, once I replace the strut do I just hook the hose from the accumulator up with the strut in the fully compressed position? What do I need to do to get the new hydraulic fluid in it and the air out?
