IACV - issue - check engine light - please help

another ?, i have a check engine light on ...and the code reader says its the IACV idle air control valve....so........i want to clean the IAC but its in a tough position...anyone know how to really clean it..because i would rather clean it and see if i can pass emmissions rather than buying a new IACV. the problem im having is getting to the IACV...if im correct its on the bottom side of the intake next to the throttle body on the 2.7 liter...and im just not sure how to approach this cleaning. i would like to just spray the throttle body cleaner beyond the valve but w/ everything still being assembled to the truck im afraid the spray cleaner will "well up somewhere and affect aother areas of my vehicle please help
