What vehicle and engine? Based on the remark of "first 3" and "back 3" I'm going to assume it's a V6. Most Hyundai V6 engines require the removal of the throttle body and upper intake manifold to access the rear plugs.

I don't own a Santa Fe but the 2.7L V6 in the Santa Fe is that same engine as the 2.7L V6 in the 2003-up Tib (with some minor differences to fit the different chassis. Below are 2 links on how to do iton the Tib. It should be the same for the Santa Fe.

This one explains how to remove both the upper and lower manifolds (you only need to do the upper half):
