Re: Doing Some Work this weekend
Before you try and clean it, just run the car with it disconnected. The connection will just pull off (there is a plastic clip). The engine management light will come on, but it should run ok.
I did this last week as mine is suffering with a misfire. Ran fine without the maf, so proved that it was the problem. Cleaned it with some electronic spray (called Colclene, but it's pretty old. Maplins probably sell something similar). Misfire went away .. for a few days at least. So it really needs a new one!
