    How easy is it to change the connector plug on the MAF? Keep meaning todo mine, the insid of mine is broke on the edge, a section seems to have chipped/snapped off. Now i dont know if it would affect the MAF or not, what you guys think? If so how much will the connector be?

    I think a scrappers would be your best bet and solder the wires...if it is chipped you may get moisture in , you dont want anything upsetting them tempramental babies....lol

    i would put a wee drop off silicone round the connector and then put the plug back on. changing the plug wont be a good job if you use solder and tape.

    No, i dont mean the outer housing, i mean the internals of the maf clip! I wouldnt be bothered about the outside but with it been on the inside and the actual connection it's got me thinking if it could b causing problem etc.
