    Default Can I ............

    ........... remove the MAF sensor on a 1.9 CDTi to clean it and not cause a problem requiring Tech 2 to reset?
    The car isn`t going to be driven with the sensor removed.

    providing you do it with the car turned off..i.e. no key in the ignition.. then yes..

    don not touch the maf sensor's internals at all..only use a spray cleaner and allow to fully dry before re connecting..

    if the car is turned off, then there should be no probs..

    You should be OK doing as GSi3.2 has suggested, but can I ask why?

    Are you suffering from bad running?

    Follwing on from this thread i looked at my MAF best I could and you could see residual stuff on it.
    So I`ve took out the K/N and replaced with new standard filter.Had to buy entire new air box to get a new lid,cos I`d chopped off the tube leading to the MAF.At least came with a new filter.
    Have had poor running a hesitation on constant/light throttle while sat at continuous speed.Vxl have updated my ECU and it`s been fine since.But I plan to keep this car a while and don`t want any premature failures for the sake of 1 or 2 bhp.

    Thats fair enough then, do you not recomend the K&N die to this. I have just installed on in the Audi and have one on order for the Vectra.

    I have never had any issues with K&N panel filters but do like to here if people have.

    I`ve courteny panel filters before never a K/N and did have a conversation about air filters with John but can`t remember the conclusion properly.
    Seeds of doubt have been placed in my mind.Unless it can be proven they give significant benefit,I`m going to replace the vxl one every 6 months
    with oil and filter change.
    Still keeping the K/N with modded air box lid.Still got the bottom section taken out of the box though.

    This is why I kept the original filter.

    It's amazing how much stuff it collects in there, a small percentage getting through would be very bad IMO.

    Not worth it for a small gain.
