Intake Manifold Cover - Taking it off

Hello,

I have a 2007, Chevy Avalanche, V8, and would like to clean the Throttle Body Intake. But, I don't see how to get the Intake Manifold Cover off. I am using a Haynes Repair manual and I don't see a reference to it. When I visually look, I don't see any obvious screws.

I would appreciate some advise.

Thanks,

I'm guessing you are wanting to clean it for possible carbon build up?
You would probably be just fine cleaning the throttle body only.

Yes...but?

Yes, that's all that I want to do. How do I get the Intake Manifold Cover off?

It isn't obvious to me.

Thanks

I'll take a look at my factory service manual when I get home this evening and see what I can post if someone is not able to answer it before them...

Intake Manifold Removal (RPO LC9/LY5/LMG/L76)




Important:

The intake manifold, throttle body, fuel injection rail, and fuel injectors may be removed as an assembly. If not servicing the individual components, remove the manifold as a complete assembly.

DO NOT use the intake manifold-to-cylinder head gaskets again.


Remove the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) hose - dirty air (716).



Remove the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor (714) and retainer (736), as required.
Remove the O-ring (715) from the sensor, as required.



Remove the intake manifold bolts (512).
Remove the intake manifold (500) with gaskets.



Remove the intake manifold gaskets (514).
Discard the intake manifold gaskets.
