    Default Air Filter cleaning.

    How do we all clean out air filters? Just ding some investigative works on my car which involved taking out the airbox so i thought i'd clean the air filter while it was out. It's well dirty. Covered in an oily residue for some reason with leaves jammed in the folds. I'd LOVE to put it in the dishwasher but it's an expensive mistake if it all goes wrong.

    If its a k&n they say wash it out in warm water leave to dry then reoil and refit did mine last year ,you can get the oil off the bay at reasonable prices,I just ran mine under a warm tap so the water went through it the opposite way the air flow would go in the car so it pushed all the crap back out instead of into the filter
