Throttle Position Sensor Attachment

Who is the ignorant S.O.B. that designed this? Two phillips head screws that are fused to the part. Hammer and flathead to get space to try to use f*cking vice grips. I've never seen such ignorant crap in all my life. What is wrong with a simple hex head bolt that you can slap a socket on? A job that should take 5 minutes can take the rest of your life. They did that with the IAC valve why change?

Yeah, it had the phillips head screws on there. On there real good! I've still got one left to rip out. lol. The screws are practically fused to the tps. I just wish it had regular bolts you could throw a socket on. Just venting last night.

tps cannot be calibrated, you just replace it, but disconnect the battery and touch the terminals together to clear the KAM and will set everything to default.
