removal of upper intake mnifold on 2004 Cadillac SRX

Is it necessary to remove the upper intake manifold to replace the spark plugs? If so, how do you do this and will a gasket need to be relaced?

The ALLDATA manual I referred to did not appear to suggest removal of the upper intake is required.
Thank you.
