Got a new MAF from an independant, it's German, I'm informed it's better than the original, it was a pain in the bottom to fit, remove battery, battery carrier, fuse box, access MAF, remove and replace, not difficult just fiddly, particularly as on my cousins 147 it stares you in the face when you open the bonnet and takes about five minutes to change.
Anyway, bleep and light disappeared, runs like a dream, hopefully I won't be posting up for a while as I should be motoring trouble free one hopes.
Oh, and call me cynical and I did mention this to Jason, I purchased my car in February, it has never bleeped or shown me the orange engine fault light, the following day after a major service at a major garage, hey presto, a fault appears as if by magic, amazing.................................
Finally, when I did the above, there is a sensor bolted into what seems to be the top of the gearbox, well the plug wasn't in it, it was just hanging loose, I plugged this in before changing MAF to see if fault cleared it didn't, so I continued. What is this particular sensor and why would it have been unplugged?
