Throttle Body Cleaning DIY for BMW E60 M5

BMW S85 Engine 1 photo
Every one of us has his little ticks when it comes to his own car, ticks like: to have the front seats in the same position, to keep the speakers' volume on any other level than 13, to always have the fuel tank half full, etc.
In case you have way too much free time and want to make sure your E60 M5 is in absolute perfect condition, you can take between 6 to 8 hours and clean your throttle bodies.

Since this particular M5 has a V10 engine, guess how many you'll have to clean? 10 is right! 10 throttle bodies will have to be cleaned, and the process isn't easy at all. However, if you claim to be a really passionate BMW enthusiast, you won't find this to be work, but rather fun.

So, if you're ready and gathered the courage to do this, here's what you'll need: a long flathead screwdriver, 11mm wrench, extensions, a soft brush (to clean the bodies), throttle body cleaner and a lot of free time. Once everything is ready, follow this DIY and you'll be set. Good luck!
