Default removing the Throttle body

I would like to remove my throttle body on a 97 L67. Can the gasket be re-used, also, what is the procedure for doing this (removing the throttle body)? I'd like to remove it to clean it, it'* really dirty! Thanks!

anyone just know if I'll need a new gasket or not? I don't have a repair manual.

If you can wait another 3 hours, I can verify. But if I remember correctly, it'* meant to be re-used.

The gasket is built into the upper intake and is reusable. Just pull the TB off and put it back on. There is three nuts around one in the midde on the top and two on the bottom sides. Also there is a little bolt you will have to take off that bolts the TB to the lower intake for support. Here some pics.
