I have talked to numerous guys about this unit. This can and was removed and cleaned. It took me all of ten minutes to complete. One guy did it a year ago on his V6 F-150 and it still works fine so I'm hopeful. I simply removed the I.A.C. From the intake manifold by removing the two screws and unplugging the wires. Sprayed carb cleaner into the ports, let sit a couple minutes, used a small brush to clean the carbon, etc. Out. I did this a couple times and it looks like new inside. When I re-installed it on the engine. I dis-connected the positive terminal on the battery for a minute to clear the "check engine" light. Turned the key and the truck ran great. That was two weeks ago!
