Rookie needing help with MAF sensor. 06 Trailblazer.

I need to clean my MAF sensor but I'm a complete rookie when it comes to vehicles. I just figured now is as good a time as any to learn. I realize where it is and I got the correct cleaner but I'm not sure what I need to do in order to get to it. Advice, anyone?

Does the 06 Trailblazer have a MAF or a MAP sensor to be cleaned? I thought it was actually a MAP, is this right?

you sure about that?
you wouldn't be confusing the two if that was true.

Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor

Mass Air Flow sensor

if you need to clean the MAF clean it, if you need to clean the MAP... well, good luck with that.

BTW a google search using pictures shows images of both.

The OP (ciliatus) wasn't confused about it.
