Hi Everyone,

Got a problem and a dilemma actually. My mech has found that the air flow masks on my car is giving an error message. This persists even after the error code has been cleared. My car's idling characteristics and fuel economy are also poor. Clearly, there is an AFM problem.

The mech suggested replacement with a new (preferred but very expensive!) or used afm. I've been wondering if its just possible to clean the thing instead ?

I'm using a performance pod air filter, that is inclined downward at 30 degrees or so.

My AFM is the bosch filament type. Would really appreciate any thoughts and advice on this matter, especially if you have had it done to your car too. Thank you.


Regards,
Baggs
