I got myself a can of carb cleaner for 4.95 and used it like they said - spray a little and then wipe off with a cloth - reassembled all the parts I took off (you'll need a 10mm socket, thats all) and now its running perfectly.
Contact me if you need a step-by-step guide, I'd be happy to share my experience. Alan
So this dude seems to be gone - its not located same place on my grand scenic 05 - could anyone tell me where it is?
