The MAF in the GT JTDm is a sealed unit (well, mine is anyway) can't do anything with it, my old 156 1.8TS there were a couple of security bolts holding the sensor into the MAF body, it was possible to undo the bolts with a small plumber's wrench and give the sensor a clean with an alcohol based solvent. This is typically only ever a short term fix and you'll need to replace the MAF shortly.
MAFs are expensive so make sure that is your problem, disconnect the wiring plug and see if the car runs any better, if the MAF's at fault it should do, if it makes no difference... or is worse, then the problem is something else and you'll only be wasting money.
All the best
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
