If we're talking about the TBPV, then you need to get a 1/8th drive 6mm
socket with a flex extension and screwdriver handle(this will make the job
a 30 second one instead of a 3 bloody-fingers and 20 minute job.)

Undo the two clamps; pull the valve towards the front of the car and
up.  Disconnect the vacuum hose.  Wiggle the new valve into place(if it
seems like it doesn't fit right, you've got it reversed.)  Resecure

You should replace the control line unless it's new/recently
replaced.  That's a little more involved, but you need to remove the metal
plate/guard thing that sits on top(well, to the left of) the metal intake
pipe.  Once that's off, remove the bolts holding the metal intake pipe(2 I
think?)  Loosen the clamps, remove the intercooler->pipe hose, raise the
front of the pipe, and wiggle it while pulling to the left to get it off
the throttle body hose assembly.

Trace the control hose back to the rear of the manifold; unscrew the
clamp, etc etc...rethread new line, reinstall everything. Don't forget to
tighten down all the clamps.

I've done it a few times, so I could probably do it in about 5
minutes if I rushed.  It might take you 20 if you took your time about it.

While you're in there with the intake pipe off, clean the throttle body
assembly with some throttle body cleaner.  Also, clean the michellin-man
hose and inspect it completely for leaks.  Bend/stretch it, fill it with
water, whatever, just be complete.

okay everybody...did I miss anything?  Corrections?
