Going to clean the TB (throttle body), was wondering if the TB gasket for R models is the same as for regular s60's. ...can't find an R specific one

Which brings me to my second question... Is the TB on the R the same as well?

BTW, any recommendation on what solvent to use?
I was thinking going with this...

... but not sure if it's safe, since the throttle is electronic.

Re: TB question... (rushin_max)

Same gasket.

I suggest just popping the intake hose off the TB and from underneath, propping the throttle plate open with a long screwdriver and spraying the throttle clean. With another long screwdriver you can also use a rag to clean the throttle of stubborn carbon. This way you avoid having to remove the throttle and it gets just as clean. I have always recommended cleaning the throttle every 30K and have done so on all my cars.

That cleaner should be just fine. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Be warned the chemical will come back to earth when spraying the throttle from beneath the car so newspaper and safety glasses recommended for sure.
