Does anyone know how to clean the IACV on a base RSX (K20A3)?

Every once in a while my CEL comes on and my idle starts fluctuating from almost 0 to about 1200. It seems to only last for 1 or 2 engine cycles and then it goes back to normal for a little while before happening again.

From everything I have read this sounds like my IACV will need to be cleaned out. The only instructions I have found are for changing it on a K20A2. Does anyone have instructions for removing the throttle body on a base RSX and cleaning the IACV? Also, how do I disconnect the throttle cable and how do I make sure it is put back on with the same adjustments as it is now?

Thanks for any help!!

spray it in the throttle body while the engine is running but u have to make it have a load meaning rev it a couple times so this might take 2 ppl 2 do. i garantee u that will solve the problem. if not perhaps faulty sensor...
