Cleaning hidden ICV part 900

Hi ALL,

I'm just finished cleaning the engine bay, grounding points, starter terminals, throttle body and ICV. And I've discovered that just by spraying some carb cleaner into the ICV isn't doing enough to clean all the crud. A part of the idle valve is well hidden even to rigorous spraying and shaking (this how I've done before as long as I could remember).

In cleaning the ICV anyone would have to use some kind of long tool (i.e. a screwdriver shaft) to manually ROTATE the internal valve to open (somewhat like a revolving door) to EXPOSE the hidden valve part and SPRAY the cleaning agent there too.

Now my idle is as smooth as ever.

Regards,
Amarin.
