where is the best place to get an idle control valve for my 9-3?

I have taken my old unit out and soaked it in solvent to loosen the dirt and grim that had siezed it, but i'm not sure now if it made a difference.

any suggestions?

The second link was def what i was cleaning. I used two very good solvents (MEK and NMP for those who know the lingo) and it sure was dirty. The valve moves now, i just hope it and the motor were not damaged when it was siezed/not working efficiently.

I took the component out again and cleaned it by removing the (the one on the side) and loosened the mechanism and added motor oil for lubrication.

I need to adjust the pin position now because when i turn the heater on it rev's to 3 thousand rpm and holds for 5-10 secs.

Should i just buy a new valve at this point?
