2004 9-5 AERO Throttle Body

My mechanic has diagnosed the throttle body is rapidly going bad (pulsing at idle in gear, pulsing on highway at speed, a fault code) and a replacement (about $520) is on back order in The USA with no time frame.

I contacted NEO Brothers (http://www.neobrothers.co.uk/index.php) in The UK who have a new throttle body in stock (215 Pounds Sterling = $337 with shipping) and are shipping it to me via FedEx International.

Guess we should all get used to doing stuff like this.

I think BBA-Reman does T7 TB rebuilds for $175. If like their alarm module work, it may come with a lifetime warranty too.

Anybody done this yet. I have seen many got sent back from BBA un-reapairable...

I have had good luck with my failing unit by lightly moving the butterfly using the cable with the engine running taking care not to be to quick or rough as to set it into limp home. Seems ot allow the sensor to "find" the posiiton at least for a few hundred miles Been doing this for several months while new ones are not available

I went with BBA Reman this spring and did the exchange. 3 months later works perfectly. They do offer lifetime guarantee.

For a 9-5? Quite different from a 9000 btw

I used P/N 9188186 in my '02 9-5 Aero (here) and did the advance exchange so I wouldn't have a down car. I did the replacement work myself - quite easy - probably a 20min job.

The car had typical symptoms of repeatedly going into limp-home mode (LHM). I'd also had some surging issues at highway speed, but not sure if that was related to the TB or not. FWIW, the surging disappeared after replacing the TB.

Anyway, I'd reset it and it go for a while (a week or two) and then it would end up in LHM at the most inopportune times. I got good at doing the reset routine, but once the frequency become more than once a week, I had had enough.

BTW, not sure if its in my head, but the throttle response seems to be much smoother now.
