I'm removing the upper Air Intake Manifold in order to check for damage to the gasket/manifold and or fluid in the hoses/connectors. I've got everything disconnected that the FSM calls for but I cannot find the fastener which holds the throttle body onto the support bracket (Step "8" of the upper manifold removal procedure states to loosen this fastener to free the throttle body from its support bracket). The only fastener I could find is the star-drive bolt which appears to hold the throttle arm linkage assembly together. The rest of the manifold is free except for something (presumably the fastener) firmly holding the throttle body section of the manifold in place. But I just can't see back behind the throttle (back end of the manifold) to see what is still hung up.
Can anyone help me locate the fastener I need to loosen? Thanks.
have the same problem?
