I just pull it out, leave the wire hooked up. Laid a clean rag down to set it on, sprayed it, used a Q-tip to lightly dry it.
The tube is the MAF sensor, the small wires are the AIT sensor. (air inlet temp sensor)
It shouldn't take more then a few minutes to dry.
I have had to re-set the ecu for the CEL it got once after cleaning it.
Just pull the negitive battery cable for a few minutes, may be 15 minutes or so.
I have posted pictures on here in one of the Forums but can't post pictures from work. My car seemed to run smoother after that.
