MAF (Mass Air Flow) cleaning.

I have a 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 V6 auto.
Does anyone know specifically how to clean the MAF sensor? I mean to do it right on this specific vehicle/truck.

You can clean most MAF’s with a small squirt or two of carburetor cleaner. But, be VERY CAREFULL with your MAF. If you break it or damage it in any way it is pretty expensive to replace.
