Default EGR and Throttle body

I've got an '01 PT Cruiser and a vacuum line that runs from the rear of the EGR valve to the underside of the throttle body. The connection at the throttle body has melted off and the tech at the Chrysler dealer says i need a whole new throttle body. I dont know if that true or not, but if it is then does anyone know where i can get a used one from a salvage yard, cause i called every salvage yard within a 25 mile radius of me and got squat.

Theres plenty of places you can get them online such as EverDrive Guaranteed Used Auto Parts ,but honestly i dont see why you would need to get a whole new throttle body.
But i honestly cant see how the throttle body could have melted off. perhaps the hose melted to the throttle body?

Richey,

One of the PT Clubs right in your area is in downtown Tampa. It's the Tampa Bay PT Cruiser club. They meet once a week for a dinner cruise. Dayton Andrews (Chrysler dealer) is their main sponsor.

Here's the web site. Tampa Bay PT Cruiser Club

Anyone know about the Jet Air Throttle Body Spacer. The review on autoanything had a guy with an 04 PT and he said that he got an extra 4 mpg. I want to know if anyone else has had experience with it before i pend the hundred bucks on something that might ruin my fuel economy instead of improving it.
