yes... you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can access the bolts holding the mirror on and disconnect the wiring harness as well..

Your fuel system is too lean. It's typically the primary O2 sensor (on the pipe between the engine and the catalytic converter). The mass airflow sensor is also possible but the O2 sensor is a wear item requiring periodic replacement and is more likely.

do the plugs yerself, on a turbo model they are awkward but worth saving your money. you need to take out the air box to do that side (off side in uk) get your plug socket 16mm, and fit it in to the plug (after you take off the leads!) then depending on length of your socket you may need an extention, i use the short swivel adaptor thingy!.. and slowly undo, ... gap to 0.7 - 0.8 on a turbo, 0.6 if your running high boost on a modded model, .............the other side (near side in uk) you got to take out the battery and the washer bottle, be careful with the pipework under the bottle and connections. .... there is not alot of room to change plugs on a 16valve subaru....so have a swear box and plasters ready lol....DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!!!!!.... BECOMES A PROBLEM TO GET A BROKEN PLUG OUT ON THESE!...
