Default MAF Question

So I feel pretty dumb for this one haha. I'm about to clean my mass airflow sensor, and I can't seem to find it. I looked at the how to and I can't see where my maf would be. So if anyone could help me out that'd be awesome. Here's a picture

See the plug on your air box? It's right there

----------

The back part of the airbox contains the MAF to clarify

Alright thanks guys, I found it. One of the torx screws had some kind of epoxy or something on it to where I couldn't take the sensor out, so I just sprayed into where I could see the metal pieces exposed. That should be fine, right?

That's all I ever did, I hoped you used MAF cleaner though.

It can burn the sensitive parts of the sensor. MAF is specifically designed for electrical. At least so I am told. Some chemicals will damage electronic components when used improperly.

Because Windex is a glass cleaner, not an MAF cleaner
