    Hey pepz,

    I'm looking to atempt to fit my new mass air flow sensor unit, at the weekend. I've scoured forum to see if anyone else has done this before, on how to which I couldn't find.

    If anyone could shed some light on how it is done & what to look out for, much appricated.

    It will take 10 mins at the most,all you will need is a philips screwdriver and a pair of grips. Take the Clip and pipe off of the MAF take out the 2 screws holding the MAF to the airbox Put in new MAF replace screws and pipe/clip job done.
    Just make sure you note direction the MAF is fitted .

    You may also need a small falt bladed scredriver to remove the Electrical connector to the MAF itself. Just put it in and slowly twist.

    As has been said before, it's a very straight forward job, 2 screws in the airbox and a jubilee clip on the TIP. :)

    Take the tools needed with you if your getting a exchange unit and you can do it in the car park outside audi/GSF as it takes minutes.
