|amc49||I don't remove TB, simply use an acetone soaked towel and open throttle and clean right where blade stops in bore and then front and rear edges of blade itself. Gets 99% of the job done in 2 minutes and zero cost.|

Can't tell you how many times I had the stock and 65mm t/b on and off and on again and re-used the gasket over and over. You just got to be careful not to tear it.

|Xetchx||I know once apon a time when I owned a Honda Accord I took it to a auto shop ( like HI-LO or Jiffy lube) and they had a TB cleaner. was a machine or something they hooked it up to to clean it. Car ran good afterwards.|

OK - The answer is it's a gasket not an o-ring. Thank you, Ray. That means no removal without a new gasket on-hand. Stock throttle body by the way. The "sheet metal" screws into only the plastic of the intake manifold make this a higher risk endeavor than one would want.
The rest of the engine is real clean. I see this on the Taurii also. Something about the pressure drop at the throttle plate preferentially deposits crud there.
I have used the Gumout throttle-body cleaner (NOT CARBURETOR CLEANER) with success. *Your results may vary*
