How do I clean my throttle body and IAC, and ugh wadda I do about this one?

Okay, so some quick questions.

How do I go about cleaning out my throttle body and IAC? I'm running a high idle and want to try this first before going in-depth. Here's a picture if someone doesn't mind explaining what to detach and clean. Also, please tell me that's not a throttle body spacer the PO installed? guess it goes along with the sick whistling CAI





Also, now I've noticed another intake related problem. My CCV is leaking in air and whistling because the rubber fitting is too loose. How do I go about replacement and anyone have the part number?

x2 on TB spacer. That is more than likely what's causing the whistles also.

Whelp, that's obnoxious and I'm gonna have to find some new bolts for my throttle body

Thanks for the PM I replied to ya!

And I found the problem of my high rev. Ended up cleaning out my throttle body. Took it all apart scrubbed her down. Cleaned out the connectors. Took out the CAI blah blah blah...

then noticed that a vacuum plug had fallen off which is where the leak was coming in you can see it at 0:27 in the video, and I'm guessing this was what is was because it's running fine now. $2 for a pack of 20 at AutoZone

Now to deal with this gasket part!
