SOURCE: How do I remove the
I have a suzuki esteem 2000 and to remove the inside of the door panel you must first locate the window roll down lever and when you push back on the panel it opeans up a gap between the lever and the panel and if you look there is an axile that connects to the lever and in the lever there is a set of groovs and if you look at the groves there is a snap on ring, you must first push that ring off of the axile which will let you to freelly pull the lever off and then you can locate the screws that also hold the panel on my suzuki I have one on the handle which is covered by a plastic cap and there is also another palstic cap a little lower. After you have freed the screws the rest are just snap on clips you can just pull the panel off.
well hope it was helpfull.

The idle air control valve is located on the back of the throttle body. It has an oval electrical connector and two torx screws holding it in. Unplug the connector, remove the two screws then lightly tap the body with a soft faced mallet to loosen it from the body.
Once you have it out and prior to installing a new valve clean the seat inside the throttle body where the idle control fits. This must be very clean! Installation is in the reverse order.
To save some cash, pull the valve out and clean it with throttle body cleaner, this usually fixes the problem for quite a while.
Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry IAC cleaning
1) remove the black intake hose from the throttle body
2) get a can of throttle body/intake cleaner
3) be VERY careful if you decide to use the straw included with the can of cleaner, it can detach and go inside of your intake manifold.
4) spray inside and use a rag to remove junk from throttle plate(front and back side), hold the straw on the cleaner can and spray into the hole just ahead of the throttle plate, let soak for 10 minutes or so
5) reattach intake hose and start engine - you may get black smoke/rough idle for a minute as junk exits the engine

The IAC vavle is located behind the EGR valve on the driver side of the motor. You will disconnect 2 hoses and unplug the wire harness from the system. The unit will come right out. Just make sure that the hoses you take off go back in the same place. Also make sure that you have the negative battery wire disconnected. I had this same issue on my 2001 Escape, had to replace both the EGR and IAC so check both carefully.
