How To Clean Throttle Body On 2007 Pat?

Anyone know the best way to get to and clean the throttle body on a 2007 Patriot?
Seems like the throttle body is mounted on the side of the engine, down in front of the grill, not a very convenient place to get to.

I am starting to get some whines and whistles on my jeep and I want to make sure everything is clean and tight with the intake system.

Thanks as always for any help.

Just take the cover off and use a carb or aerosol cleaner

Thanks for the reply.

How do you get to it?
Mine is mounted on the front side of the engine block just behind the rad. It's buried under the coolant hoses on top of it.
It's a tight spot.
I was wondering if anyone has done this before and could share what they had to take apart to get to it?
