Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Sorry for the delay in getting to you. You are correct. An this car (or any car with a rear subframe, for that matter), the rear differential, exhaust, brake cables, etc, all of that needs to be removed before the rear subframe can be replaced. Think of it like this: When the car is assembled, the first thing under the back of the car installed is the subframe. Therefore, everything under it needs to come off.
