Default installing the TPS

took that part of the intake off to clean the IAC and figured I would take the TPS out too just to make sure it was clean and working. When I went to put it back in it has to be installed with tension on it or with a few millimeter gap before it would engage. anyone know which way to install it?

Default Re: installing the TPS

from the 2004 shop manual:

The throttle position sensor attaches to the side of
the throttle body (Fig. 64).
(1) The throttle shaft end of the throttle body
slides into a socket in the TPS (Fig. 66). The socket
has two tabs inside it. The throttle shaft rests
against the tabs. When indexed correctly, the TPS
can rotate clockwise a few degrees to line up the
mounting screw holes with the screw holes in the
throttle body. The TPS has slight tension when
rotated into position. If it is difficult to rotate the
TPS into position, reinstall the sensor with the throttle
shaft on the other side of the tabs in the socket of
the TPS. Tighten mounting screws to 6.2 Nm (55 in.
lbs.) torque.
(2) After installing the TPS, the throttle plate
should be closed. If the throttle plate is open, install
the sensor on the other side of the tabs in the socket.
(3) Attach electrical connectors to the throttle position
