View Full Version : So, if I was going to replace my throttle body this weekend?

[wrench]I finally found another throttle body after I got screwed over by (see my sig). Got it on eBay for a good price (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180330436502&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&viewitem=). They guy even through in a gasket.

Anyone know of DIY? I'm thinking this is an extremely simple job, correct. Anything else I should get before I start the job?

My computer lost it's COM ports and my USB port that I used for Vagcom stopped reading most things. So hopefully I don't have any problems with doing a "manual" adaptation.

I'd like to know it too,

since yesterday I tried to get it out. Uncrew the 4 bolts, but couldn't find a way to disconnect the metal stick located under the throttle body.

I took it out to clean it once. Wasn't that bad actually. Just the 4 bolts and the cruise arm thing.

yup 4 bolts, the cable and the linkage.
