Do I need a new MAF

Getting to my DISA and ICV for replacement and cleaning I found this in the large intake boot. Should I replace the MAF? When I cleaned it a couple of years ago one of the arms was broken...... Thanks for the help!

Thanks

I would, especially since the component is after the air filter. Apparently, you have sucked some plastic pieces already through your throttle body and into your intake. You have been lucky so far, don't press it, it must be brittle and ready to frag into pieces.

I had not considered the post airfilter "shatter factor". I am ordering now. I will feel better knowing it is fixed anyway. Those little devices affect a TON of things.
