[RESOLVED]Removing Intake Hose From Throttle Body


420A: I'm trying to clean the throttle plate with carb cleaner. I was wanting to know how do you remove the big hose from the throttle body. I've been pulling on it, and it won't budge. I've removed both restraints from the tube, and don't know what else to unscrew or unbolt. Thanks.

Twist and pull. They are generally a bitch to get off.

Also, don't use carb cleaner on a throttle body.

Carb cleaner can damage sensors.

Isn't that only if you happen to get some of the cleaner down the throttle body by accident?

Anything like this will work great.

Buy CRC Throttle Body and Air Intake Cleaner 05078 at Advance Auto Parts

As for getting the hose off... You can get underneath of the hose where the clamps were with a hose removal tool, or sometimes a flathead screwdriver.

Got it off by using a flathead screwdriver to carefully pry it off and cleaned out throttle successfully with throttle cleaner. Thanks.
