Cleaning MAF

I've been reading alot about keeping MAF clean of oil residue from K&N filters. But what does a MAF look like? As you can see, I'm new to this. If you have a picture of it, that would be very helpful. Or, point me to the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

You know that tube between the filter and the engine? Where it sucks air in? Its in the tube!! Once removed you will see the honeycomb screen on it, it has a wire harness that you have to disconnect to remove it. BE CAREFUL!! Do not damage it in the process. Good luck.

When I installed my VM CAI, I gently wadded three paper towels and put them in the K&N filter. Then sprayed to outside with an air hose (80 psi).
All three paper towels were soaked with the red oil they use , so I took three more and did it again. The second time the towels were about 30% red, so I stopped. IMO, a little oil on the filter is good, but I think K&N gets carried away with it.
Supercharged and a few other goodies.
