Re: Assorted Clio Problems

Ok, so the new MAP Sensor arrives today. I've taken the old one out and had a look to see if it had any oil on it again and it has.
I had a look in the orrofice that it fits into and their is some visible oil in there. I understand this to be the Air Intake Manifold and presume there shouldn't be oil , just air! So before I replace the sensor and risk contaminating the new one, I'd like to clean out the oil . Can anyone advise how difficult a job it is to get into this area? If it isn't a nightmare, could you let me know how? Would this be documented in a Haynes? If so I'll grab one on the way home to save someone explaining.
I'm guessing too though that this leads to the throttle body and this may too be contaminated with oil now =( I guess this is a pretty big job and I could do with asking a garage to take this out to clean it?
Thanks again.
