    Idle control valve help

    hey all, anyone tell me how to clean the idle control valve on my X18Xe1, had the throttle body off but looks like there is no way to get to the valve, so guessing I'll have to get a complete throttle body as my control valve is chucking a code. Cheers

    TB cleaned New EGR and new Coil pack fitted, car still no different so next step is a new throttle body to sort out the idle control valve, if that does'nt work gonna have to be a new ecu. Any one had my problem of trying to keep the car at a constant speed and loads of hesitation, does this sound like the ICV is the problem apart from the ecu I can't think what else. Cheers
