I have an idling issue with my Renault Clio mk2 1.2L 2002 - the engine stalls as I slow down at lights and roundabouts etc...

I have been searching the web for solutions to this problem, Most answers point towards the Idle Air Control valve needing cleaning/replacing - I am now trying to locate it in the engine I did find a diagram, however I am not sure if it is accurate.

How do I get to the IACV, or even better do you have a few pictures/video demonstrating how to access it?

A bad IACV is one of many potential causes for your symptoms. In my experience it is not guaranteed that the common problems faced by folks online is representative of what your car is experiencing. How sure are you that the IACV is bad? – Zaid Apr 23 '14 at 19:56
