Re: Another MAF question
I used a large pair of pliers and turned carefully and slowly. They are basically large self tapping screws into the plastic moulding.
I used something called 'Colclene' that I had lying around for years (we used it to clean computer components in the late 70's/80's in the days when you could actually take the disc drives apart and clean the surfaces!!!).
Whatever you use must not leave a residue as there is a heated element in the MAF and anything left behind will burn on, possibly damaging the element permanently.
