Default How to remove throttle body?

I need to take my throttle body off to clean it because it is starting to stick. How do I go about removing the throttle cable and the other cable from the bottom of the butterfly? Hopefull I won't need a new gasket for it.

the cable(s) just pop off, better get a new gasket if it's more than a few years old.

I would go get the gaskets for it before I started to mess with it if I were you. When I changed my stock TB for 65mm one, there was corrosion on the studs and nuts holding the TB and EGR spacer plate onto the intake manifold and the studs backed out of the intake rather than the nuts coming loose from the studs. Once I got all four loose, I had to tap the studs loose with a hammer and then clean them thoroughly to get the corrosion off them and then put them in a vice to screw the nuts off before I could reuse them again.
And the gaskets tore when I finally separated the two pieces too.

Alright, well maybe I'll just pop off the throttle cable and the other cable and clean around the TB return spring and butterfly with WD-40.

I would use some good carb cleaner instead of WD 40 to remove the carbon deposits inside the throttle body, WD 40 will not work on these.
