Cleaning Electronic Throttle Body and IAC??!

Is this a good idea? I've heard of it causing problems later. I decided to clean my maf sensor, but leave the body alone.

What do you think?

It won't cause problems unless you leave the battery connected or the throttle body connector plugged I and use your hand to open/close butterfly valve.

Make sure you unplug either the connector or the battery if you're going to be using your hand to open/close the butterfly valve.

Cleaned it with CRC Sensor Kleen, no problem, except a ton of salt caked around when the plastic intake hose sits. Started up after a few hard cranks and ran, no problem.
