K&N air filter

Sorry folks, I know this is not any Audi-particular thing, but I'm having 
trouble re-oil the air filter (the real problem is that I only have read 
only access to rec.* groups).

The problem is this: I have the spray-type oil instead of the hand-pump 
type. Well, either I have offended god of K&N or something, the stupid 
thing will not spray -- the "spray" would accumulate at the spray head 
(and my fingertip which is depressing it). This is the third can I'm 
using -- and the past two cans weren't any better.

Right now I just let it "drip" -- which amounts to about 3 seconds per 
drip, which is quite slow and agonizing (not to mention huge drips). I 
know hand-pump type would solve the problem, but my local dealers don't 
carry those.

I tried to clean the head but I'm having this suspecion that it's more of 
a bad spray head design than anything else. Has anyone encountered this 
problem and overcame it by some modification to the head??

Q: How many M$ employees does it take to screw in a light
A: 113 -- 1 to change the bulb, 2 to argue about the
   configuration of the light switch, 10 to examine the
   consentual agreement on the package, and 100 to plan the
   grand gala introduction of the new "lighting system
   component 95!"
