Are they sure it's the stepper motor and not just the butterfly sticking?
Sticky butterflies aren't all that uncommon on BX16Vs so I can see no reason you car could be any different. Stuffing around with it may be intensifying the problem.

Get yourself a can of carb cleaner and squirt it all round anything in the intake system that moves- butterfly, airflow vane, etc. Its cheap and may sort your problem, assuming you don't have an airleak somewhere.
