The force of the spray actually helps to remove the crap, its not as fragile as some people make it out to be as long as you know what your doing. Only use a good quality electrical spray cleaner. DO NOT USE WD40! It's a release agent, not a cleaner. Do not touch the element with anything, not even a cotton bud. Clean it 3 or 4 times, wait 10 min between cleaning. The electronics are completely sealed in so the spray wont have any effect on it.
When you look inside the MAF from the mesh end you'll see what looks like 2 bare wires. These are the heated sensor elements and they need to be clean to work correctly. Use the spray to give them a few good blasts.
If there is any debris stuck in the mesh pick it out.
