    its perfectly normal

    unless ur experiencing fluctuating or high idle speeds then its nowt to worry about

    ive got a brand new TB here and it sits ever so slightly open too so i would just forget about it

    if it shut fully the car would stall, it needs a small air bleed even at idle
