I took pics with the intent of doing a writeup, but just haven't had time yet (I've found that it take a lot of time to do one decently). There are other TB cleaning links, but they dont' go into much detail and dont' show the IAC part of it. I was most interested in the IAC issue, which becomes completely clear once you see how the air flows when the butterfly is closed. I've posted some key pics in my gallery.
It is pretty simple: remove everything from the airbox to the TB. Four bolts hold the TB on. Disconnect the #3 coil pack connection for clearance to remove. Put the TB on the bench, remove the IAC housing (DO NOT remove the IAC valve form the housing): four phillips head screws hold this to the bottom of the TB.
Douche the TB with TB cleaner and a toothbrush, and use Q-tips on the airways underneath to and from the IAC. For the IAC, use a Q-tip with TB cleaner on it to gently clean soot and grime from the airways and around the mouth of the inlet to the actual IAC valve. DO NOT get cleaner in the IAC valve.
You'll need new IAC (rubber) and TB (aluminum crush) gaskets. They are not reusable, and you really dont' want to risk leaks with coolant or fine abrasives in these areas.
The four TB bolts are 13 lb torque. Do them in a cross pattern.
I'll post up a few more pictures to my gallery when I get home tonight.
