Taking the whole throttle body off is very easy - 4 easily accesible bolts and the accelerator cable.
Then it's much easier to get at the TPS torx (T20) and you can give the throttle body a good clean at the same time.

|Hillbilly1||I had to bust the old one off enough to put vise grips on the bolt heads, I sure was not going to put torx bolts back in! (Someone had replaced it before, and had already stripped the heads out, Loctite on them didn't help any either!)|

|Jerry Bransford||A new sharp torx bit will help, I put mine into a small 1/4" ratchet wrench to remove those particular screws which the factory locktited into place. The 1/4" ratchet wrench allows more torque against the screw as well as better control over it. Apply straight-in pressure to prevent the torx bit from slipping out of the torx screw & stripping it out.|

Throttle Position Sensor
Has anyone removed or replaced the throttle position sensor on their jeep? I have been having a lot of trouble with getting the screws lossened to even remove the part. Does anyone have any tips? I drive a '99 and need to get this part fixed before I drive home from college after finals week. Thanks.
