Reinstalling ICV .. How to get it back in?

Hi all,

I am having problems reinserting the ICV to the manifold. It is tricky b/c I don't have the manifold off and it it hard to completely reinsert the ICV into the manifold with the grommet in place. Any tips or how did you guys do it? (Grommet inserted into manifold first or grommet attached to ICV first?)

Right now I'm dead tired with a achy back. Pausing until tomorrow.

Thanks.

Did you completely remove the entire air box side? Including the throttle body and all? I did this 2 weeks ago. Yes it was difficult but you have to put it on exactly how it came out with the hoses pointing in the same direction it came out.

Here is the diy I followed.

Yes I was already using Doug's site as one of my sources for this job. Anyways I finally got it back in with hard persistent effort and lube.
Thanks for the help though

However, my traction control light is now on after reassembling everything. I believe I have all the connectors on, including the one on the throttle body. Hmmm.. need to investigate

Traction control only? Or abs as well?

It's not so hard to move the manifold up and out of the way. Just don't drop your nuts.

Grommet on the ICV, and a metric sh!tton of lube. Lots of wiggling and twisting.

Sorry guys, I had to pack up and leave the country for a bit after figuring things out and did not log back on here during my absence.
Crappy internet in third world let's just say

Thanks for all the replies. here are the answers to wrap this one up:

>>Traction control only? Or abs as well?
It was only TC..The problem was my clamp (the screw head part) on the intake boot got in the way of the ASC throttle body. I had to loosen then rotate it a bit to get it out of the way. This was not obvious from just looking at it. You need someone to start the car to see the issue. I just got lucky guessing.

>>It's not so hard to move the manifold up and out of the way. Just don't drop your nuts.
That is the problem. It is last nut against the firewall that was too much of a headache.

>> Grommet on the ICV, and a metric sh!tton of lube. Lots of wiggling and twisting.
Yes, a **** load amount of lube, true persistence and rest in-between attempts finally got the Fing job done. Felt like working on a 911 engine bay. Trust me, space in that car's engine is such a nightmare.

Again, I really appreciated the help. Thanks all!
