Hi guys,

What is the best stuff to clean the maf sensor with?
Will brake cleaner work or is it to aggressive or should I use electrical contact cleaner?
Here in the UK I cant seem to find maf cleaner off the shelf.
Cheers Kallie

I found Liqui-Moly MAF Sensor Cleaner on eBay in the UK using a North America MAF Cleaner search. Does anyone know about this product? If you do a UK search, you may find CRC or other cleaners offered in the UK.

Hi Kallie,

In the USA we have major auto parts chains such as NAPA, AutoZone, Advance Auto, etc. They all have websites. I sometimes find availability and/or compare prices before I drive out to buy one of their products.

You can also Google or enter CRC MAF cleaner in the URL line/web address at the top of the web browser internet explorer to maybe find a local source. Also, the CRC website may list retailers.

You can use electrical contact cleaner. HOWEVER, be sure it is the non-residue kind. It's also slower to dry, so use canned air to blow it off the critical areas and let the parts stand for a while afterward before reassembly.

Good luck.
