Bolted on side of your throttle body matey. If your taking it off, I would get a new gasket from Vaux too.

After using carb cleaner on my X20XEV throttle body, I sprayed all of the moving parts with 3-in-1 (WD-40) to ensure nothing dried up too much.

Try opening the throttle from the engine bay with air intake removed to see if you can see what's sticking.

Is the butterfly flap secure on its mount? Open the throttle and try moving the flap. The only movement should be with the pivot itself - ie open and close no side to side movement. Also, check around the throttle cable linkage and return spring to make sure nothing's obstructing its movement.

There is a posibility of it being caused by the throttle cable if it's damaged/frayed.
