Those screws are only 4mm. Very hard to extract. I've done one on an L36 IAC VALVE (not sensor) before.

My best advice is to tie that sucker into place very well so you know the o-ring is sealed, and find a replacement throttle body.

Is any part of the screw still sticking up? If the head broke off and left the rest, you can usually turn them out easily.

If not and things get ugly.. please know if you need a new TB quick.. send me a pm..I've got it sitting here and it can be there quick and cheap.
