K&N Cleaning

Well its time to clean my CAI filter, its very dirty. Do any of you guy know what I need to do to clean it besides spraying it with a hose, i know i probably need oil cause K&N uses a filter that requires a oiled filter. So any info will help or else Im gonna just go buy a new filter for it

Be careful not to over-oil it as well. All you need is a few drops. Over-oiling can mess up your MAF sensor

You are right, that was dumb way for me to phrase "a little bit".

I actually took some compressed air and blew from the inside out. It got a bunch of the dust out, then washed with warm water. As soon as it was dry, I used the recharge kit and applied the red oil.

Works like a charm

Do I need to apply oil to the inside of the filter like the inner surface? I'm about to start cleaning it
