MAF Sensor CLEAN'D on my N55 | DIY included

Just got done clean'n my MAF sensor.

It's around that time for service when they change ur
air filter and oil. And with my N55 I'm rocking Harold's foam filter.
so i don't need a new filter just need to clean it and recharge.
but i do need to look at the MAF sensor.

There were concerns of oil residue build up because i'm
using a foam filter and better than wait for any kind of
potential build up, I figured why not clean the sensor on a regular

pick'd up a bottle of CRC MASS AIR FLOW cleaner and
did some cleaning.

When i first pulled off the sensor, i made sure to look for
any sign of oil - didn't see any. The sensor appear'd to be
clean without heavy blotches of dirt or oil stains.

drove it around after the cleaning, and i have to say
it does feel better. It's simple to do and I don't see why
I wouldn't continue to clean the MAF sensor after every oil change.

i figured this would be pretty good maintenance practice
so i did a DIY.
