    Default M.A.F from rbay

    Hi, Think my Maf has ******ed up, been looking for a new one but the dealer wants near on £150 I have found a second hand one from a srapper but costs a little more than one from ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Air-Flow-Meter...item2302317899

    Does anybody know if they work ok or would i be better of buying the one from the scrap yard.

    Cheers

    It would depend what sort of warranty the scrap yard will give you.

    If they will give you a reasonable warranty, then I would go the scrapyard route. At least you know it will be compatible and exactly the right part for your car.

    Or try this company http://www.airmassmeters.com/. By far the cheapest when I was looking for my GSi (£190 ) but I never actually bought one because................

    I was getting code P0110 on start up for 5 seconds, then the spanner light would go out. I did read on other sites that a dodgy MAF can effect mpg, which would seem right in my case, as it had dropped to 18mpg around town.

    I'd already cleaned the MAF to no avail so decided to take the sensor out of the short air trunking. I'd also tried the isoprophyl (?) stuff but still no good. Then used brake cleaner spray, re-assembled everything, re-set ECU and lo and behold, spanner light out, no more codes and mpg is back up to 28 round town.

    EDIT - having looked at E-bay link, I'd say that at that price, it's a cheap inferior product to say Bosch. Read about what Bosch think http://www.boschautoparts.co.uk/pcAirM4.asp?c=2&d=1
