Throttlebody sensor & replacement of throttlebody

Hello There,

Took my car to Honda- They said I need to replace my throttlebody on my 2005 civc, special edition(actually the sensor is not regulating the proper voltage). They quoted $750. Seemed high! The mechanic said he has never seen this happen. So my question, how hard is it to replace? Does this ever happen? Should I buy used, or new? I was quote $85-100 used for the entire throttlebody. Does anyone have a diagram of what this looks like? I have always taken it to Honda for service, but times are tough & I don't mind getting dirty if it saves cash. My skills are limited, but with some guidance (from you all) I would be willing to do it myself, if the savings are worth it. Thanks in advance!

Throttlebody (TPS) Sensor

Thanks for the help...Unfortunately, nobody seems to have one of these for my 2005 Civic. Can anyone tell me if there is one from a previous generation that would work? No one has one past 2000. Thanks in advance.
