Re: Hello 1st time 406 owner

Yes the wheel has to come off.

Alternatively you can drive your car to Graham, he does a while you wait service :)

If your paying a garage to fit a new com's unit, probably going to be north of £300.00 fitted :(

Re: need advoce maf sensor

Thanks for that, took no time to remove now I knew where the tab was... Even better, the flat spots from the acceleration have gone and I now have the full engine power back with the MAF plug disconnected. No more going up hills at 20mph... didn't think unplugging the MAF would fix that but it has....

That took all of 15 seconds to remove, as I said no screwdriver needed just push the plug into the M.A.F
sensor & pull that tab down & then out :cheesy:

Re: need advoce maf sensor

Yes,
As Ginger say's the only thing I will add is to be very careful using a screwdriver,
I have found if you push / press the M.A.F connector into the socket of the M.A.F at the same time as
pulling downwards on the inner plastic tab you have shown in your last pic it should come away quite easily.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

:( very sorry Steve, ain't it crap when sxxt like that happens.
We buried our last cat just a year ago, not going to try & replace them.

Can't go through that again for a while after 20 years I'd become quite attached.
