    on the throttle body

    whip off the intake trunking and maybe engine cover if necessary

    will be held in with 2 torx bolts and look like this




    Try cleaning it with carb cleaner - clean the throttle body and EGR too whilst u have access to them (details in how-to if u dont know)

    if cleaning doesnt resolve the issue then a replacement may be needed

    Ive tried shitty copies in the past but an OE unit from Delphi such as this is whats called for
