If your carfull you can remove the distribution piece without breaking anything. Doru, you just changed your CVV and hose not long ago. You shouldn't have any trouble to clean the distribution unit. The way I clean it, is to remove the part using a very long screw driver to pry up gently at each port front to back. I use throttlbody
cleaner and spray into each port slowly until the whole of the body is full. Walk away afterwards and let the part soak for about 10 min and then come back and use some compressed air to get the junk thats in the part out. Of course have some new 0 rings ready to replace the old parts on the DU.
On checking the DU for vac leaks, you would be surprised how many told me I would hydrolock my engine
by having a few drops of water introduced to the combustion chamber from my methods mentioned.
