    NO AIR! it will damage the cotton Gauze that is between the screens. Go to an auto parts store and get a K&N cleaning kit. it comes with the cleaner and the OIL. about $20. Good luck!

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Yeah just but the recharge kit get all the dirt out and let it air dry for a few hours depending on the temp out side. The spray tin layers of the oil on the filter letting it soak about 1min each time until you cover the whole think BUT DON'T spray too much or you will harm your mass air flow censer just enough to coat it.
