    I've got an '07 V6 Pre-Runner and just passed 30,000 miles, so I'm finishing up my 30k preventative maintenance. I tried reviewing the steps to cleaning the throttle body, but the pics on the 'Complete 30k maintenance' thread aren't matching up to my engine...

    Here's what I've done so far. I've unplugged the wiring clip in front of the throttle body and pulled loose the small hose directly to the left. When I loosened the large hose clamp, I couldn't get that "housing" to budge at all. I didn't want to force anything loose on the first try.

    Any pointers based on the given information/pictures? If you need more information, let me know.
