BTW, the way to remove the plenum is to remove the 12 acorn nuts that hold the horns on, NOT by removing the hoseclamps and rubber boots. Maybe this is obvious, but wasn't for me the first time. I highly recommend having a little magnetic pick up tool (Sears) handy because it is very tough to grab some of those nuts and washers. Also inspect ALL the hoses that attach to the ICV for cracks - check the one that comes in from the charcoal canister too.

In the process of removing Idle Control Valve to clean or replace,It's very tight space under the intake manifold .Do you remove the intake plenum to get to it or is there a procedure to do this?
