I have been using google and this site to search for a working MAFS cleaning link. The link to the MAFS cleaning ... http://www.louv.tv/cars/m5/MAF/ is not working. Does anyone have it saved or can get the link to work? Can anyone post it on the thread so I can print it? Am I looking at the wrong link? Did it go down? I want to clean my MAFS when I do my inspection II tomorrow. Please help me!!

I read a post that said not to spray into the housing? is the spray ok for the platinum sensor?
You can spray into the housing. Make sure the straw does not contact the sensor in any way.

Here are the instructions straight from CRC:

1. With the engine off and cool, locate your MAF between the air box and throttle body.
2. Unplug the MAF wire harness and then remove the housing.
3. Place a shop towel or rag under the MAF housing to catch any run-off. With straw
attached to nozzle, apply 10-15 sprays of CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner onto the
hot wires or hot plate and thermistor inside the housing making sure all sides, wires and
connectors are also cleaned.
