Intake Manifold Gasket replacement on 2.4L

Hey Guys,

I need some help with the replacement of the intake manifold gasket on my '09 Vibe. There's plenty of info and "how to" videos out there for replacing the 1.8L 's gasket, which looks super easy, but I've not been able to find any information for the 2.4L. I know the procedure is basically the same for most cars but my problem is where the intake manifold is located- in the back of the engine between the engine and the dashboard firewall, making it very hard to see any of the connections- bolts, hoses, etc. So, my questions are: How many bolts hold it on? I see 3 on the top and one on the bottom- are there any more that I'm not seeing? Is there anything I'll need to disconnect that's not visible from the top? And , once I get everything disconnected, will I be able to pull it out through the narrow opening between the engine and the firewall? It looks pretty tight.

Thanks in advance for your help.
