why not take it off? its not that tough. much easier to clean also (especially if its REALLY skunky). as far as cleaners, i just use any carb cleaner - pick one, and a good assortment of brushes (like bottle brushes etc.). you can clean the LIM on the car but how are you gonna keep all that BIG crap from falling down inside? If its just liquid, its not a problem, it will burn off, but if you are scraping big chunks out like ive seen on a few of them....good luck.
