Throttle body cleaning

Does anyone know whats involved in a throttle body cleaning. My 2011 is in for recalls and they are trying to talk me into it. $149 for the service.

Re: Throttle body cleaning

There are differing opinions on the wipe down method, mine was barely dusty at 35k, but for sure there's no place to ever spray or soak an electric throttle body. As for the service its a normal add on for them, I wonder if they actually do anything, cause a traditional soaking would be very bad. So if not it's it's $149 for a rag? It's just not kosher considering mopar says leave it alone.
The last thing at the bottom, credible source.

Re: Throttle body cleaning

Thanks, that's what I thought. Found different opinions after I posted. My original search I misspelled throttle.
