Question 2005 X3 starting issues

Anyone familiar with the process of removing the idle control valve on a '05 X3 with the 3.0 engine?

from joylove post ....a great link for you

just cut this from the joylove post above yours .....


a very good view of what and how to deal with the idle contrl
don't be intimidated by what's on top of it .....it's mostly plastic scenery and can be removed / replaced by a good leggo enthusiast
