I was looking to clean the MAF on my dads 2002 Suburban. Yesterday I took a look at it and couldn't figure out how to get to it, and how to unplug the connector into it. Any help?
Mass Airflow Sensor/Intake Air Temperature Sensor Replacement
Important: Take care when handling the mass air flow sensor/intake air temperature (MAF/IAT) sensor. Do not dent, puncture, or otherwise damage the honeycell located at the air inlet end of the MAF/IAT. Do not touch the sensing elements or allow anything including cleaning solvents and lubricants to come in contact with them. Use a small amount of a non-silicone based lubricant, on the air duct only, to aid in installation. Do not drop or roughly handle the MAF/IAT sensor.
<LI type=1>Remove air intake resonator. Refer to Air Cleaner Resonator Outlet Duct Replacement . <LI type=1>Disconnect the MAF/IAT sensor electrical connector. <LI type=1>Loosen the clamp securing the MAF/IAT sensor to the air cleaner housing.
