Bad AFM?

Ok, I've traced my problems down to the AFM - the flap sticks every time I get near redline at WOT and the car runs like crap from then until I physically pull the flap back loose. I've dumped a whole can of electronics cleaner in it with no luck. Has anyone had this problem before? Any luck cleaning/repairing it, or do I just give up and start looking for a new one?

Yeah, I mean you can dick with it, and spray it with lube, clean it, etc, but it might not fix the issue, if its warped or just plain broken then its a waste of time to mess with it, they are cheap...
