NEVER EVER CLEAN YOUR MAF WITH A CARB CLEANER, YOU WILL SCREW IT LIKE THAT!!!
Get Electronics part cleaner and clean it, it should be cheap....

There's a HOW TO on this. I cleaned mine with the quick dry electrical parts cleaner made by CRC (I think) and it can be had for about 5-6 bucks a can.
Here's the How To Link.

Yeah, I usually clean mine with electronics part cleaner about a few days after I oil my K&N, just in case i have oiled the filter too much. Cleaned it today and it made a noticable difference. Nver had any problem spraying the MAF, just don't get super close with the can and let it dry, it'll be fine.

I agree, never clean it or deform it in any way.
