Default 206 2.0 Hdi MAF Mass Air Flow Meter Sensor

My mothers car seems under powered so I had a look at the MAF which has a very thin wire at the back but the one at the front is missing (if there's meant to be one there), in which case this is the fault yes?

Also noticed the directional arrow on the outside is pointing towards the air filter box, is this correct? I would have thought this arrow should show air flow and therefor be pointing towards the back of the engine bay.

Just unplug it and it should lose power , if it doesn`t and power stays the same then the MAF is flucked

According to Servicebox, the side with the mesh grille goes into the air filter housing.

Yeah I did that but just wanted to check if there was meant to be 2 wires.

That's what I'd have thought, in which case the arrow on the housing does show the air flow.

These maf sensors don't make a blind bit of difference, unplugged the one on my Megane and it still drove fine.

I'd have to disagree. I bought a 306 with a faulty MAF. Replaced it and there's now a much stronger surge of power when accelerating. I also get better MPG.

But that's Pugs and not Renault. Although I had a Punto with a faulty MAF and that put the car into limp mode all the time unless disconnected or replaced.

I once disconnected the maf on my 2.0 hdi 90 and couldn't get the car to start. All was well once I re-connected the maf

Question Replacement MAF

Hey,

I can't find any page that can answer my question.

I want to replace the MAF sensor in my car as it's done over 100K miles, and I doubt it has ever been changed. Peugeot will charge me 160 for one.. and that's outrageously expensive for something so simple as a few heated wires..

I've seen replacement MAF's on Ebay but I've told only to get a Siemens VDO one and they're the expensive ones

Can you recommend a MAF sensor to buy?

I bought mine from a place in St Helens.

I spoke to the current owner of the car I sold last year and its all still working fine.

MAF Company Recommendation: Airflow UK (St Helens)
