Re: throttle housing

There's a rubber ring inside to seal it on the manifold.
Search on throttle relearn and the procedure is easily found.

Re: throttle housing

Last year I removed complete throttle body of my 1.6 (2002.y), cleaned it with some kind of MAF cleaner. There is no gasket to replace.
You have to unscrew 4 bolts that are holding it to the manifold, also unplug the connector.
I think that cleaning this way is better as you would be able to clean it from the "inner" side. Don't push butterly spring too hard... After that, just screw it back and do the throttle relearn. It is simple.
Here are some pics:

and how it looks clean...

Re: throttle housing

Maybe it is not sufficient to mention that in my case I have an extra wire connected to throttle body (from negative battery terminal). I beleive this "grounding" was done previously in service, maybe due to some kind of problems.
