You can take the tank apart, but you can't disassemble the base. The AFC ring and all that are just a "single" piece essentially. If needed you can soak it or even rinse it out, but honestly since it is all part of the air intake system that is all that should be needed there anyway just to get rid of any condensation that may have gathered there. The tank part that actually holds the liquid is able to be fully taken apart for cleaning.
