The trouble with alcohol or electrical contact cleaner is that it leaves a residue behind which is why i always use carb cleaner then rinse the maff under warm water to clear any residue left then dry with the other halfs hair dryer then refit. It has always worked perfect for me.I spent a few months cleaning out the MAF with Isopropyl Alcohol at regular intervals. Made a difference for a day or two, then back to the usual lag. Eventually bit the bullet and got a new MAF. Definitely worth the cash! Car was like new and much faster and more responsive than it had ever been.
Go for the original Bosch if you're thinking about it.
Unscrew the two torx screws and then pull the bugger. obviously make sure you have pulled the conector block of it first. Just give it a good tug. The maf that is.:cheese:I might have MAF problems too (no acceleration until 2k rpm, pretty much normal after that + diagnostic shows much more air being pulled in than its supposed to) but i cant seem to disconnect the bloody thing!
Can anyone tell me where there is something to pull or press to get it off? I should probably do that with the air hose off but if i do that i'll never get those clips back on...
:lol: :lol:then again :cheese:his mrs proably wonder why he's in garage all time:cheese::cheese:
So if i understand correctly to unplug it (not remove it.. i just want to check if MAF is at fault) i just pull the connector block off? I wont break any catches or anything if i just pull it?Unscrew the two torx screws and then pull the bugger. obviously make sure you have pulled the conector block of it first.
