1.6 TS Throttle Body
The bella in question is a 147 1.6 120cv.
I'm about to replace the crank sensor next week (when engine is warm she cuts out in idle and won't start until cold).
reading some threads here i understood that since i'll be working from the top (i have no access to a lift nor do i have axle stands) it's a much less PITA job to do if the throttle body is removed.
1) I've been looking through EPER trying to find the part number for the gasket between the throttle body and the inlet manifold (in case it needs to be changed when refitting) and couldn't find any. does this engine even have this gasket? couldn't even find it in the illustrations...
2) I thought about giving it a good clean while i'm at it, the TB was never cleaned from the inside, only lightly cleaned from the outside and gently rubbing with a cloth avoiding the valve itself. since this is a fly-by-wire, does moving the valve WHEN THE TB IS OFF THE VEHICLE considered a safe practice?
