throttle body cleaning?

How do you gain access to the throttle body for cleaning? The coolant hoses are in the way and going under the car doesn't help.

Take it to the dealer if it needs to be done.

Re: throttle body cleaning?

It's an electric throttle body, we do not clean electric throttle bodies at work the cleaners can take the motor out and I would not recommend sticking you'r fingers in there, they can slam shut at any time. Feel free to try but if it gets messed up be ready to buy a new TB.
