Take those out of the way and there are 4 screws that hold the TB on. If yours is an AHA engine code, you'll have to contend with a throttle cable and the vacuum modulator for the cruise system too.

Anyway, once you get the intake tube and the tray out of the way, it is self explanatory.

As sharky said. there are 4 bolts on the solenoid tray.
You have to also unplug the various vacuum hoses. Mark them all up before you start.
I used white out.
Once you get the hoses disconected you can lift off the tray.
The air duct elbow only has one bolt holding it in place to the TB.
Once out you can pull off the elbow. Look out for the rubber seal though. you will need to replace it in the correct position.

What are you trying to do exactly?
If you are just trying to clean the TB, just go ahead and remove the 4 bolts holding the TB to the inlet manifold.
The throttle cable and the vacuum modulator for the cruise system are a bit of a btch to get off.
I left them connected, just removed the TB bolts and twisted the TB up to enable me to clean it out.
Oh, it was real bad too. nice and clean now though :)
