Default HOW TO REMOVE THE IAC SCREW?

95gt 5.0

How do you get the lower screw out

I got the top 1 with a 5/16th socket but can't get the socket in the lower 1 even with a swivel!!!

Am I a idiot or is there a trick to it? Everything I've read says to use a 8mm or 5/16th socket.

I have a 8mm socket but it's deep well & won't fit as there isn't very much room between the screw and a black looking pipe running on top of the valve covers. Also I noticed when I use my shorter 5/16 it won't go on because there is a curve on the IAC above the screw that seems to intrude the way!!

HELP PLEASE AS I NEED TO CLEAN THE IAC

If your pulling it to clean it , I suggest just remove the entire throttle body so you can clean that as well. But Im pretty sure on my 94 I used an 8mm or 5/16 open end wrench , 8mm and 5/16 are the same thing so it doesn't matter. It helps to remove the air intake tube and use the shortest wrench you can find.
