K&N Air Filter Cleaning

Post by poloplayaWP » Tue Nov 01, 2016 7:25 pm

Hi guys I have a K&N Long Life Serviceable filter in my 2011 1.4 GTI. Is it safe to oil it after cleaning with the K&N Solution or should I only clean it. I know on some cars the oil messes with the MAP/MAF sensor.

And can anyone post a good tutorial.
