At least 7

The only way you can get under the burners is to lift off the burner caps and you see 2 screws to be removed on each sub burner housing. click here for picture

You will have to do that for every burner, Once you have all the housings removed the top will come up to access the area under to cooktop. You may have a couple of clips to depress with a putty knife between the top and the front panel.

May I ask why you want to do this. These are sealed burners that are designed to prevent liquids from entering the area under the cooktop.
