This helped find the problem on my sister's v6 2006 mustang and I didn't have to remove the throttle body just the hose that goes into it. I don't know a lot bout cars but this helped my find the problem. when we took apart the housing the thermometer was broken and the seals were also broken but it was about literally a 30 minute fix for me.

I don't believe I removed the throttle body the first go around I had, however you certainly can if you like having extra room. I did indeed remove the intake manifold in order to get to the back bolt that I stepped. I had to drill into the bolt and twist it out with an extraction bit, that was an extra step that I hope most people won't have to go through. Just be careful with those bolts, use the correct tools and take your time.
