Cleaning MAF sensor

15451 Views 11 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  01SE
All of the tutorials I have seen are telling to take out the MAF sensor for cleaning. However, on my car it requires a special screwdriver it seems (in fact two, because the second screw looks different to me)

1. Does this mean that it's not really meant to be taken out?

2. Is there a way to clean MAF sensor without taking it out?

Yeah, all ive ever done is remove the accordion air hose and spray the 2 small filament wires inside.
Tb or air intake cleaner spray would be fine.
