Default how do you remove the iat sensor on turbo?

I am getting a p0113 code and am wanting to clean or replace my iat sensor. Does it just pull out? I don't want to break it. It is located on the hose right before the throttle bottle correct?

You really should download or get a Factory Service Manual.

Even with my credentials I always get a FSM or at least an Haynes , Chilton or Clymer etc. on the car I own for reference.

Not all the advise on forums is the best all the time.

Suggestive reading?

Don't listen to him..

I recommend using the acetylene torch and cutting out a few inches around the IAT so you do not damage it. Then stick the sensor in a jar filled with vinegar and set it on the shelf like a body part in a horror movie.

Now those sensors change ohms with temperature, Honda are like
100 ohms = 248 degrees
20,000 ohms = -40 degrees
So measure yours at 60 with a multimeter, stick a resistor in it's place, and enjoy better performance... Or get the value at 248, and it should stop that annoying pinging with 87 octane

P0113 - IAT Sensor Circuit High Input Conditions:
Possible Causes:
1. IAT Sensor signal circuit shorted to VREF 5 volts
2. IAT Sensor signal circuit is open, or the ground circuit is open
3. IAT Sensor is damaged or it has failed
4. PCM has failed

When the code is triggered is there anything that changes? Engine idle change?

I noticed it came on the first time when I was sitting at a railroad crossing idling.

I would check the wiring and contact going to the sensor.

I did buy some electronic cleaner spray and sprayed the connector. The light still didn't come on today either.
