Adjusting dampening for rear coilovers?

I am looking to lower my GTI this summer. I've decided to buy the KW Street comfort coilovers. They are rebound adjustable.

Adjusting the front is easy but the rear maybe not so. The adjusting knob looks to be at the top of shock tower. Is there easy access to the adjustment knob from the trunk or would i need to remove the shock each time i want to make rebound adjustments?

You would have to remove the shock

Once you get them dialed in/set shouldn't need to change it again though

KWs are not fun to adjust, but also like snobrddan said, you likely won't be adjusting them often once dialed it, its just that first time you go to do it, it'll be a pain in the ass. Another popular choice are Bilstein B16s, I have those and I can just reach under the car and adjust.
