Question New 2000 V70 Sw Owner

Hello all. New to Volvos but have always admired the car and just bought a pre-owned 200 V70 SW. I've heard of some Throttle body problems-replacements for this car. Can anyone tell me what thats all about?

The '99s and up have an electronic TB which as you've read are prone to failure. Cleaning is still recommended and sometimes necessary when idle becomes erratic or if you recently had a MAF or 02 sensor go on you and it might be gummed up. The volvo intake is "dirty" anyway so after a while it will always have to be cleaned.

Cleaning Throttle Body

Is this something one can do on their own?
