Last season I cracked and injector line and sprayed #2 all over my engine room. I replaced the air filter and kept the old as a backup but never did anything to clean it. The air filters from Volvo are very expensive so I would like to have this one ready to go and clean the new one while I'm at it. So what's the best way to cleaned an air filter?

I used to use WIX air filters on my 41 volvo, i just took one of the volvo filters to the wix shop and they matched it up to one they made. Try some of that super clean stuff on the one you have, wash and air dry and i'd think it would be good? Maybe one of those kits for cleaning a K&N filter?
