Removing Throttle Body

I have a 2000 v6 and I'm having some issues removing it. Most of the bolts and screws are so covered up that I'm not sure which ones to remove. Anyone have a write up or any helpful pictures that might be floating around?

I'm trying to take it off to clean it so I would like to take it completely off.

Thanks.

I'm a firm believer in the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" rule.

Well, TB's can always use a good cleaning, unless its already clean.. haha. When i replaced the radiator in the SS I noticed the TB was filthy. So I cleaned it. I can only imagine what the intake like like inside of it.

Sorry, I'm having stalling issues and my mechanic buddy narrowed it down to most likely a clogged/dirty TB. Plus I doubt it has been cleaned before so it can't hurt.

You shouldn't need to remove it. Just take the intake tubing off

Well I took the intake off, then there's the screen, which I don't know how to remove either.

Don't remove the MAF screen. Use MAF cleaner to clean the resistors.

There are little resistors behind the screen.

Most likely a dirty idle air control valve. IAC.

That's what I figured as well, but my buddy said no because I'm not having any issues at idle while sitting, only when putting the car into neutral while still moving.

I might clean it anyways though.
