1. Detach air intake hose which connects to the throttle body


2. Unclip hooks on top of air filter housing


3. Disconnect electrical plug that connects to the MAF


4. Remove intake hose, MAF and air filter housing unit




5. Inspect condition of electrical contacts inside the intake hose



6. Spray the electrical contacts liberally with Electrical Contact Cleaner



7. Reassemble





Hope this helps someone out :thumb:

Hey Stone, I dont think I'd want to become a service technician. I'm looking into environmental science at the moment.
Completly different fields :lol:

Thanks Scott, it sure does. I thought it would be really hard dissassemble and clean the first time then I found it was really easy.
Other people might have thought it would be hard too so I posted this up to show them how easy it really is :)

I've also got the pictures for a Throttle Body clean and Idle Air Control IAC clean, but I havent posted them up yet.
I'll do that straight after my exams are finished ;)

Disconnect The Battery First before you do anything with the electronic. :wall:
