61 and 71 are about the same.

I take the rubber boot out/off and then get a 1/4" magnetic nut driver. Do not forget to cover the opening to the inducer, if you drop the screw it is a b!tch to get out easily.

Sometimes, depending on the gas piping, removal of some or all of the manifold and/or piping is required.

When they brought in the G71 and it was the same, we brought in tools for the area rep so he could see the error of their design. I guess they finally listened, they did them different on the newer models.
