How To Clean MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR

2001 S, 3.2, 6spd

I have codes that lead to an inoperative MAF SENSOR.
I'd like to locate and clean/service it.

Does anyone have any info to offer?

Garage
It's right down by the air filter box where the intake hose leaves the filter case...
Pull the secure-torx...pull the MAF and use some MAF Cleaner spray (NAPA or any good autoparts place will carry it)

Careful when you put the screws back in that hold the MAK. They screw into plastic and its very easy to strip.
