Removal & Installation
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
Remove the air intake hose assembly from the throttle body assembly.
Detach the crankcase ventilation hose and the electrical connection from the throttle body.
Remove the bolts securing the throttle body to the intake manifold, then remove it. It may need a slight tap to break it free from the gasket.
Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure to use a new gasket. Tighten the mounting bolts to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
