Actually, this is probably a lot more work than you bargained for. The only way to get between the tubs is to uninstall the entire tub and split it apart. There are clamps all the way around the center seam of the tub that you just pry off to split the tub, but taking the entire tub out is going to be a long process. Below is a video that shows the process if you wanted to do it yourself. You can determine if this is too much for you to tackle or not after watching the video.
