It is on the 1.8 havent done a 1.6 but i assume its the same location look at the car from the front lean over into the bay and look down the side of the throttle body housing youll see this this is the idle control valve 2 bolts hold it in place you can either access from above or from under the car i would also check the emission hose on the car it looks like this thats the part number on it its below the throttle body with the engine running you maty find this has collapsed
