    Throttle Body

    Hi all idiot diy mechanic here.

    I want to clean my throttle body on a 1.6 a3 and just want to make sure that before I go breaking things Im taking it off correctly.

    Is it just a case of unclipping the clip on the inlet pipe and unscrewing the 4 bolts holding it on?

    I have done a search but nothing seems to cover the whole procedure. Cheers.

    Hey Fella, you should do a search as this topic has been covered recently, but here you go I did it for you:

    You'll find search has most of the basic questions and answers you need.

    thanks for the reply. I have seen the post but I on my car the metal ring attaching the inlet pipe to the throttle is different and there does not appear to be a screw to untighten. Is it just a case of pushing something back?

    Sorry I didn't state this more clearly.

    Cheers
