06.10.2004: Cable cover
If you were to clean the throttle body, then you'd stop here, just clean it inside and put the pipe back. However, to replace the throttle body, you need to do more. Continue with removing the cover over the throttle cable (two 10 mm bolts).

Tools and supplies:

  • 10 mm socket: throttle body and cable cover bolts;
  • 13 mm or 1/2" wrench: negative battery clamp;
  • flat screwdriver: delivery pipe boot clamps, limp home mechanism reset;
  • pliers: coolant hose clamps;
