Throttle Body 4 bolt torque specs

Recommended Posts

Loren or anyone, I'm in middle of cleaning my 2004 S throttle body.. What are the torque specs for the FOUR bolts that hold the throttle body on?


They were fairly tight when getting them off but cannot locate torque specs for the bolts


Need the specs ASAP if anyone can assist would be most grateful!

Hey bmats, relatively easy job.  Just taking your time when removing all the parts when getting to the Throttle Body...  I would suggest replacing the air filters (X2) as well as clean the MAF sensors (X2) (ONLY CNC MAF clearner NOT THROTTLEY BODY CLEANER ON MAF!)


Once I removed throttle body from engine, I  just sat down with rag, old soft toothbrush and CNC Throttle body cleaner and started SLOWLY spraying TB cleaning fluid both outside housing and inside the chamber. (stay away from spraying the plastic electric housing on the outside).  You will find the chamber and butterfly valve facing engine side will be the the worse for wear and will need the most cleaning and effort.  You can (gently) move the butterfly open with your finger(s) to clean in the center of the chamber (very shiny center area with a special coating, I did not use toothbrush in that area) and around the edges of the butterfly.. Mostly just take your time and be in no rush to do the work.


I did also replace the throttle body "green" rubber seal/gasket as my pig has 123K miles on it and thought had never been replaced and it made good maintenace sense to do it cause it will be a while when I do it again.


I went by this DIY over at pelican parts.. it was a good reference
