    Turns out I've got a dodgy MAF and will be replacing it once I find where to get a new one :(
    What I want to know is if it's okay to drive around with it disconnected until the new one turns up? Or should I reconnect it and put up with my revs bouncing around...

    na you'll be fine, the traction control light will come on and stay on..... the car will just use the preset settings as opposed to real world settings which the MAF would ordinarily give

    Come again?

    Also it's just come up with a check engine warning, that's not normal is it?
