It's easy to get to if you pull the intake manifold but it's hard to get the intake off without pulling the head....Does that help?

If the motor is a 2.2 liter you might be able to get them off from the bottom of the car.

I changed one last summer, and I put the car on stands high enough to pull the tranny. I also used a 2" extension mirror to find the bolts. And it was a PITA!
