    If you take the throttle body off then whatever you do dont try and open the flap manually. It has a small stepper motor attached and you will break it. an exchange unit will cost you about £70. If it looks coked up you can clean it from both sided with carb cleaner on a rag. Dont spray the unit direct or again you will damage the electrics.
