Default Throttle sticks

BF's father has a 94 SL2 with a sticky throttle. The throttle kit from the dealer costs $300. Any advice/info on another way to fix it without it costing that much?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

troubleshoot. what are the parts in the throttle kit(?) - check against your parts/car. what are the moving/rotating parts, are they worn. are fasteners/retainers loose. spray and clean, apply appropriate new grease as required.
good luck.

If, perhaps, there is a "sticking" feeling when you gently press on the accelerator pedal, you may be abe to correct this by turning the idle adjustment screw. (It's under the throttlebody and may have a black plastic cap on it. Once you've located the screw and removed the air duct assembly to get at it, just turn the screw clockwise a little bit to eliminate the problem. Cost? No money, just a little time. If you hesitate to tackle this yourself, any friendly mechanically-minded person can do it for you.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Changing the base idle settings may cause a ses light problem. To fix a sticking throttle recomended procedure is to remove the throttle body and clean. The throttle body is held on with two 10mm bolts. Use carb cleaner to clean the throttle plate and bore. If damaged upon removal. a throttle body gasket may be necessary.
