Default How to remove IAC valve? (97 pickup)

1997 pickup. I can see it, but canít see any relatively simple way to access the 4 Phillips screws holding it on. Iíd need a screwdriver about 3/4 inch long. And a well trained lemur to operate said screwdriver...

My plan is to just start removing crap thatís in the way till can get to it, then hope I can get it all back together. Any better ideas?

I use a Phillips apex bit in a ratcheting handle. Or one of the offset screwdrivers that has a 90 on each side with a Phillips on one end and a flat tip on the other.

I use a Phillips bit in the right size 1/4"' drive socket with the ratchet to break the screw loose than the bit and socket by hand to remove the screws
