Please don't do this. Carb cleaner is for Carbs. Intake-safe or sensor-safe cleaner is best for Throttle Bodies, and make sure you remove your MAF sensor from the TB BEFORE you remove the TB. Put it in a safe place.
Clean it GENTLY with a qtip and alcohol or electrical contact cleaner, make sure not to put pressure on the filaments.
Carburetor cleaner has been proven to kill MAFs on this site. Our members are victims of this.
