Disconnect neg battery cable

Disconnect electrical connector from the MAF

Remove air cleaner outlet tube assembly

Remove MAF sensor retaining bolts lift the MAF sensor out

use electronic parts cleaner or a maf sensor cleaner

DO NOT TOUCH THE MAF SENSOR WITH ANYTHING

Spray the living daylights out of the wires. Do NOT touch them. ABOSOLUTELY DO NOT TOUCH THEM. Those wires are very small and delicate. If you break one of them....it's a $150 mistake.

I would also recommend NOT to do anything to "help" it dry.

Yeah. That stuff should evaporate relatively quickly. So just let it sit.
