If its anything like mine its a bit of an awkward cow son to get off Jock. Four bolts, too close to the bulkhead, bit of a back ache bending in there.

Once its off, just blast the crap out with a can of carb cleaner.

Cool.... Had a look earlier. Got AAC valve stamped on a plaque on the rear of it.... Looks like 2 screws on mine, top and bottom.
Bottoms gonna be a total bar stewart as its scross from the ignition amp and loom, so how I am gonna get a screwdriver in at that angle I don't know.

Where's me hammer?

Whee.... I learned something today....

Whipped off the AAC valve (took 5 mins :D) and cleaned it out. It was FILTHY with soot. So, I gave the port into the plenum a scoosh or 4 with cleaner too. Then, I decided to stick my finger in and wiggle it around to get some grime off....

Bad idea. Got it stuck. TOok a lot of swearing and brake cleaner to get my finger out, which duly bled all over the inlet manifold... as well as inside it.

So, what did I learn? Well, that the mighty RB20DET runs very well on a mixture of air, optimax and about 200ml of my blood.....
Organic or what?

nice one Jock, the jobs not done until blood has been spilt :)

I might join the club and clean mine later and the throttle body too. Cant do any harm, well it can if i brake something and the chances of that are only ~70%

Cleaning it... Well, when its less gunky it can moce more freely... Ergo it can control the idle its supposed to control more readily.

Bleeding is an optional extra, all it really does is give some vitamins and iron to the car.

No pics... Location:

On an RB20DET, its at the rear of the intake plenum, if memory serves. Brassy coloured (not as dark) thing that bolts into a hole in the back of the inlet manifold.

No I dont care really, sometimes digging up an old un can be embarrasing for some, is all. There are pics of the valve on here somewhere by the way.
