Default Optra, Throttle body repair

Hi. I drive a chevrolet optra 1.6. Recently i had problem with my throttle body and i had to buy i new one. Now, since i have the old one, i'd like to open it up and try to see what was the problem... The SC told me that it was due to a mechanical fault with the motor in the throttle. Its the one that adjust the butterfly and that caused the engine to stall.

Can i modify it? Anyone can advice? The screw is a star like screw that i've seen on handphones. What is it called? need to buy that too
