    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 bi*** 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?

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