    hi all.

    well I got my E200 Kompressor and its GREAT to be back :D:D:D:D:D. Just going through my check list of things to do and one of them is a throttle-body cleanup.

    I have attached a pic that shows what i believe to be the TB and was wondering if after i disconnect the MAF and Ducting is it simply a matter of removing the 3 hex bolts (shown in red) and lifting it up to access teh plate ?

    or is there more to it than that and also is there any gaskets that i need to have got before starting ?.


    thanks in advance

    I cleaned the TB on the 210 200k I had a few years back , from memory its as simple as that , undo the bolts and piping .
