Removing the DISA helps alot. Also a small ratchet with no extension and a 6mm might have worked. Glad you got it. As for the throttle body connection it's a breeze. Theres a plastic tab at the bottom of the connection that you push on if I remember correctly. Pretty straight forward. As you push on it, you probably wont have the leverage to pull it out so with a bigger flat head screw driver, wedge it gently between the throttle body and edge of the connector, and just give the screwdriver a slight turn. It should slide off. You tryin to remove the TB to clean it?

Edit: heh, just noticed the guy above my post said that same thing.. see?
