Take a closer look at Figure 2 on the site. Then take the MAF sensor outta 
your car and compare. At least if your car uses the same sensor as mine 
(the Hitachi), it'll look identical to the one displayed on the site - the 
one the site states is NOT self-cleaning. Hence the need for cleaning every 
now and then...
