Idle control valve on a w126?

Where is it located, and how do I clean/repair it. Also, if I need to replace the hoses around it, can I just go to Autozone and buy a legnth of hose, or will I have to get MB approved german rubber hose?

Thanks in advacnce!

I did a search before I posted, and that post didnt help. The picture only obfuscates things.

Thanks anyway

Look at the photo, and find the center point. From there, look directly to the left. There is a cylindrical looking metal object that has some rubber hoses attached to it. There is also a paper label with numbers printed on it, on the top of this device. From what I could make out, the numbers clearly visible are: 141 16 25

Hope this helps,
