Throttle position sensor install

My 99 slk230 has a bad throttle position sensor. I have one to replace the bad one with. I need to know are there any adjustments to be made to the sensor/engine once its installed or is it ready to go out of the box ? If adjustments are to be done please tell me how to do those as I have never replaced the sensor before . Thanks for the help

If you get a chance take some pictures of the install and post them in the R170 DIY section please.

I can take the pics but,I cant load them . I cannot figure it out for some reason. Photobucket doesnt like me. I have tried many times to load photo just cant get it done. So, if you guys can figure out a simple way to post photos I will be waiting.
So I assume there are no adjustments . what about the cable adjuster that attaches to swing arm on TPS ?
