Default Re: Idle hunting/ stalling while stopped(car warm)

Please use the search function. There are a ton of results if you search for 'idle control valve' and also search for 'intake manifold removal'.

Here's the link to remove the manifold. Once you have that removed, you'll have access to the IACV. You'll need to remove the clamps on it and clean it out with throttle body cleaner. Replace the clamps with new ones (worm gear clamps will work).

This youtube video is for the regular e46, but the process is similar.
