I disconnected the down pipe from the exhaust manifold. You can actually reach all four bolts from topside. The head, exhaust manifold and shield all come out as a unit.

I suppose that if you really had to, you could remove the exhaust manifold by first removing the shield (four allen-head bolts, if I recall, across the top of the shield). This would allow you access to the exhaust manifold bolts.
