2005 Aero convertible petrol


I know this subject is tackled in various places on forum and on Youtube but I am getting mixed messages,

What I am confused about is whether or not I should move the butterfly or take great care not to move it all!

I would prefer to open it (battery unhooked of course to save fingers) to get to all the muck, but some people say doing this will confuse the ECM

I am doing this job because I am getting random fault codes and ECL, never the same codes twice, and while the problem may be more complicated I think it would be a good idea to start with a clean.

I've had this car a few months (before I had. 95 and 9000) and I doubt theTB has ever been cleaned.

With my 2 I clean them but just leave the butterfly where it is .
Also MAF electrical contact cleaner, spray through the gauze.

Does that mean you cant really clean the area where the butterfly edge meets the body? Id have thought you need to open the butterfly to get to that spot both sides?
