    Default Cleaning Air Flow Meter 3.2 - Any Tips / Advice?

    I have decided to clean the Bosch MAF on the Vectra in a bid to sort out my erratic varying idle speed issue

    Any tips appreciated - Method and what to use etc.

    Cheers

    Have you cleaned the TB mate. I have no real knowledge on the Z32SE but on the Z22SE an erratic idle usually points towards a dirty TB. Free to clean mate, nothing to lose.

    So are you replacing it or did a clean do the trick?
