View Full Version : MAF location- removal and/or cleaning

this is a picture of your MAf in its housing- remove two screws and the "trumpet section ( hollow tube) should slide out- the MAF sensor is located in the tube.


You can see two security special wundabar screws..these are easily removed using pliers if you dont have a security special wundabar screw removal set.
using one of these products clean your MAf sensor- available at dicksmith or auto parts etc

spray inside all the nooks and tiny openings- saturate it with your cleaners, but DO NOT TOUCH with anything!! not even cotton buds!! just the cleaner will do-- allow to dry for 1 hr and reinstall.

Those screws are 5 point security not torx. Not the most common item on the shelf.

Pliers get them OK though. I have the right tool and can never find it usually.:roll:
