    Question B5 Throttle Body question

    Hey,

    I decided to take a look at my TB and this is what I found. The hose leading to the TP had some sort of moisture in it, wasnít super black but pretty greasy.

    After inspecting the right side of the TB I noticed it was "clean" but after sticking my finger past the TB plate this is what I got

    Same oily substance but much darker and thicker along with buildup that Iím going to clean soon...
    So my question, is that oily substance supposed to be there?

    Normal. It's just oil from the breather system.
