throttle body cleaning

New member here. We (my daughter and me) own two Foresters, 2015 and 2018. Can someone tell me how to remove and clean the throttle body WITHOUT messing up the computer control of the throttle mechanism. I'm assuming this is possible but there is a lot of conflicting information online about this topic.

Subaru sells a kit that will clean the TB. Check with your dealers parts department.
Thanks. What about the calibration "problem?"
If your vehicle had 150+ K miles on it it might be worth it. Otherwise just dump a can of Seafoam in the tank every 5K miles. Wallyworld sells their own brand..probably just as good.
