For sure the heat shield needs to be removed at least partially to get access to the back of the actuator to remove the electrical plugs.

The second time around i took off the crossmember just to have more space and is easier to remove the actuator but you can do it without taking it out. But its not hard to take the crossmember and you will have the space to work freely.
