what sort of job to fit the MAF.
Got one a few weeks ago as I suspect mine and am trying to replace everything that's not 100%
One (at the most two) Haynes spanner(s)
It's under the fuse/relay box mounted to the front of the battery, battery and battery tray has to come out to allow the fuse/relay box to be moved out of the way. Usual word of warning regarding radio codes.
The MAF is held by 2 bolts into the side of the airbox, one of which is awkward to get at, I used one of those flexi extensions that come with small socket sets.
The other side of the MAF is just a hose held with a jubilee clip that goes off to the turbo inlet. Can't remember whether the clip is reusable, might be worth taking your new MAF to any motor spares place and buying a clip to suit before you start.
Bit fiddly but easily doable for anyone prepared to have a go.
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.
