Anyone replaced their spark plugs on a 2.0 petrol?

Had a quick look on mine and it seems you have to remove the air inlet manifold that very inconveniently covers the spark plugs!

So if the manifold has to come off the head, what type of gaskets are used, do they need to be replaced or is there an easier solution?

Any insights gratefully received :-)

Remove the throttle body, followed by the air inlet manifold.
 
Head to manifold is sealed by 4 rubber O rings recessed in the manifold, no need to replace unless damaged.
 
Plugs changed in just over an hour, including tea break!
 
A lot easier than it originally looked.
