    2nd pic left hand side at the end of the intake manifold (with the cable thingy on it) and the hoses coming out of it.

    so the throttle body is the actual black hose in the 2nd pic, bottom left? i can see theres a silver clip at the top there, anything else at the bottom that holds it in there?

    any advise on what to use to clean it? i've heard carb cleaner being mentioned.. whats carb cleaner?!

    Take off the hose etc to remove.
    Carb cleaner is carburetter cleaner, usually in an aerosol like WD40. Give it a good spray around and clean out with a rag. Then reset it with VAGCOM.
