If that was the start of the problem why didnt you just fix that, or have i missed something (easy done short attention span
This was the start of the "idling rough at cold start" problem, the high revving was still happening at this point, which is why I was removing the valve in the first place. Still no idea what happened to it, it must be lodged somewhere in the engine bay. I know it's not visible anywhere from above, and it's not on the undertray or the driveway so god knows.

I see, that makes sense then. The previous reports I have had from the same garage had the correct chassis and mileage on, must have been a different tester or something.

Still feel that MAF is at fault, sounds similar to yours?
I have already cleaned the connections and checked them, but I did once have the fault code for the MAF come up after removing these connections (hence why I cleaned/checked them) and the fault went away. Seems they can be susceptible to being disturbed. Thanks guys though. Had to go look at a Clio today, as I'm having to buy another car to get her to work till we can get it sorted. She's been getting a taxi now for over a month.
