    after your done put your key in and turn the power on but dont start the engine or the throttle then the ecu should calilbrate it for you.

    it takes about 30secs

    if you do it using the key method it resets the valve to the learned positions which don't take into account any wear / movement in the body or flap. if you take the battery off all the learned values are erased and then it'll do a full callibration. under normal circumstances the key method will be fine but if you think something has got disturbed then the battery method is going to give better results

    when you put it back on, the car will do it automatically.
