    Mine was very easy to change when I replaced mine. You need a pair of hose clamp pilers and phillips screwdriver as far as I can remember.

    You need to remove the MAF electrical connector, undo the screws (2 I think) that attatch the MAF to the airbox and then release the clamp holding the MAF onto the flexible pipe (I just move it alon the pipe rather than taking it off completley).

    Pull the MAF out, refitting the new one should be the reverse of this.

    The 2 'screws' that hold the MAF in place are removed with a tool that looks like torx, but it has 5 points instead of 6 if you know what I mean. Probably wont get it in your local halfords anyway!
