Idle control valve etc.

Please can some kind member let me know how to go about cleaning the idle control valve in the attached photo? It does seem to be very dirty inside the pipe, but I don't want to risk taking the unit to pieces. If I dismount it, and then flush it out with WD40, would that do the trick? By the way, what is the unit to the right of the idle control valve? It has an electrical connector on top...see photo, it is attached to the plenum. Thanks in advance.
