Yes, but there is still a lot of stuff to move out of the way to get in there and pull them. I would try all the chemical remedies for sticky lash adjusters (oil flush, marvel's mystery oil, etc.) first, then check the timing belt to see if a worn timing belt has let it slip a tooth and the valve timing is off for that reason before digging into the lifters. There used to be a forum that had video and audio from a subaru legacy this model before and after swapping out a bad lifter. Google for it and see if the noise matches.

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

Possible. I have replaced the roller rocker arms and push rods because they get clogged and wear out both parts. I guess if left to long they would punch a hole threw the arms and knock alot louder.
