98 Boxster MAF Replacement

Recommended Posts


I've read all the posts related to the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor issues on the Boxster - which part number to get etc etc.

I couldn't find any info on how to actually get to the sensor in the first place.

Could anyone help me out with this (if you have photos even better)?

If you will send me your email address by email, I'll send you a MAF cleaning and replacement writeup I'm working on right now if you promise to critique it and return comments to me so I can improve it. It will be in 7 page .doc form with color pictures and part numbers even for tools and cleaners. I having my son do mine tomorrow to test the write up but I believe it acurate now and it does show how to get at the MAF and where it is in the engine compartment.

Just so you know, you will need a tamper-proof T20 torx screwdriver to remove it. It can be removed in under 5 minutes with just that one tool.

I also highly recommend cleaning it and seeing your problem goes away. The part is pretty expensive ($250-300).

Mike - you should consider putting your instructions in the Boxster Wiki (http://boxster.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page)
