1993 300E 3.2 ETA location? pics?

Ok, ready to replace the ETA. Now the car starts fine and 1/2 mile later goes into limping mode. Engine wiring harness is nice and pliable evrywhere I have removed the wrap/insulation.
Where is the ETA located, I think I have read great info from all posters that refer to the ETA. What has to be removed in order to reach the ETA?
Anyone has a picture showing the ETA?
much appreciated.

Thanks, Juan

If you click the "DIY" link at the top of the page you will see my write up of my wiring harness replacement. At the end there are some shots of the ETA, and where it goes.

It's a pretty easy job!

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Great, I did look at the DIY area before I read you reply and it makes it easy to find now that I looked at the pics. Thanks.
Thanks, Juan

I'm sorry I didn't resond earlier because I wasn't sure what an ETA was.

The throttle acutator is underneath the intake manifold.

You can replace it w/o removing the intake manifold. It's just a tight fit.
