1986 Camry le Mass air flow

I've noticed that a lot of cars can have their MAF cleaned. Is the MAF on the 1986 Camry LE also cleanable. I don't see the sensors, but just the movable metal flap.:help:

Doesn't have a traditional MAF. The 1st and 2nd gen Camrys use what is called an AFM or a vane-type Air Flow Meter- There is a rheostat of sorts turned by the flap as the engine speeds up and draws more air through the sensor. They can't really be cleaned, though you could use WD-40 to clean/lube the pivot points of the flap if you're afraid they're dirty.
