I have the K&N filter in the stock airbox currently. What is the best way to clean it? Just warm water or should I buy anything?

Also, it's been almost $20K miles since I had it - is this bad?

Thanks,
Sergiu

I got the drop in filter as well. I bought the recharger kit from K&N. Its like $10 at Pep-Boys. I know that after cleaning it you have to oil the filter. I would be extremely careful oiling it. I have heard if you OVER oil it some of the oil could get into the engine and mess it up.
