Default MAF thin wire inspection

If you suspect the MAF as a problem, inspect the thin wire for breakage.

The only tool you will need is a T20H driver.

Remove the connection plug from the MAF. It'* located on the throttle body.

The MAF has very fine wires, so be careful.

Inspect the wires closely, do not touch the wires as there are very thin. If they are not broken the sensor should be OK.

Now put the MAF back in the throttle body and put the screws back.

Now plug the MAF back in.
