    Just after the air box, the tube that leads down to the turbo has a cylinderical device with a single electrical plug on it, jubilee clip either side.

    Thats the MAF, be very careful what you clean it with, something that leaves no residue is best i.e. ISO Propayl Alcohol

    Electronic cleaner ( from Maplins) might be better than WD 40.

    Others have said before that if you go for a drive with it disconnected and there is no difference then it may well be shot. As the sensors inside are small and delicate its hard to notice any contaminants on them, as said above use electrical contact cleaner or maybe carb cleaner.
