    MAF cleaning or replacement

    Hi

    As my car is on 126k now I am servicing everything as I heard the MAFs tend to go and when I was getting her remapped the maf sensor came up on the diagnostics so knew something had to be done, would it be okay to clean it or just replace it?

    At 126k just replace it. IMO cleaning a maf is a waste of time. If the hot film is fucked or stained you won't ever clean it properly anyway but people like the placebo effect. At 126k it's past it's best anyway....

    It will need the fault code erasing now as its put it as a fault in the system. I would find someone with a diagnostic scanner to reset it for you.....
