    If you are referring to an 04 Tacoma, I do not show any indication in the diagnostics that says there is any kind of adjustment. I will check again to see, but perhaps giving a more detailed opening post that mentions truck details would be more helpful next time you are needing help.

    You can loosen the two screws that hold the tps on, then you can spin the tps to get like 20 degrees of adjustment.

    Never seen that much adjustment before on any TPS. Typically they have only about 4* of movement. Is your replacement TPS an aftermarket one? On the ones I have replaced on a Tacoma I have installed it, centered it, and left it there. Never had any problems with them after that.
