1) remove the TB from the car
2) remove the sensors and IAC from the TB
3) clean it with dish soap/water mix
4) Use a GOOD Phillips screw driver to remove the 2 screws from the throttle Plate
5) Remove the Throttle plate and an you should be able to remove the shaft from the throttle body (you MAY need to slighly file the shaft where the 2 screws were to allow it to be removed)
6) You will Notice that the Shaft was on BOTH sides of the throttle plate, what you want to do is remove the Half of shaft that WITH OUT the treads, the treaded side MUST NOT be cut.
7) NOW you have half a shaft left, hench the name "half shafting" you can put it back together now.
8) You can shorten the 2 screws by 3-threads now and USE Loctite blue on the 2 screws when you re install them to hold the throttle plate to make sure they stay put.

I ALSO found this post On V6power, RGR took the pictures

those pics do me no good, it still seems a bit confusing....i guess if i actually go and take the TB off and look at it, i might be a little more willing to start on this project since i dont have a replacement if i screw something up

well.. im going to attempt half-shafting once my motor cools down a little bit more. ill let every know how it goes... oh and a side note, i got my 17"x32" manual moonroof installed today, and it DOESN'T leak (we had a good rain this evening), but if for some reason it does begin to leak.. its a lifetime warranty on the seals. -greg

well.. with the exception of a couple little minor complications, it was easy. the complications were i broke a small piece of plastic that holds a part to the throttle body, and the other complication was i accidently got a sensor wet... so when i fix those two things ill let ya know if i notice a difference.

and as for the moonroof, i like it a lot. the final cost was $265, and i have a lifetime warranty on the seals. -greg
