View Full Version : bad question already did a search MAF sensor

12-12-2010, 08:39 PM
I have an 98.5 AEB and cant find the freaking mass air flow sensor. I am showing a lean code and no vaccum leaks so I want to try cleaning it but cant seem to locate it. I know it runs off the air intake but all I cant seem to find it. Another question is do I have to reset anything if I want to change ecu? I have an ECU with a APR chip not sure if the ECU is good but after I install do I need the VAG for anything? Worse comes to worse I'll have a shop change over the chips but just wondering and thx for the help!

its inside your airbox lid.

...if you have one, i dont know if all AEBs did. maybe someone can chime in.

but if you have one, its inside your airbox lid.

inside the lid? Ok i'll try looking there. My car does have one I am picking it up a Neftin VW in thousand oaks as its cheaper and in stock compared to Rusnak Audi and DCH Audi who both dont have it in.

The MAF is located after your air filter, you should see it on the outside, on the path that the air goes to the acceleration pedal. Google for Audi MAF to see an image and find it easier.
