Airflow meter - removal and refitting

Note: A tachometer and an exhaust gas analyser will be required to check the idle mixture on completion.

2 Depress the locking clip on the airflow meter wiring plug and disconnect the plug.

Pull on the plug, not the wiring.

3 Loosen the securing clip and disconnect the air inlet hose from the airflow meter.

4 Release the four securing clips and lift off the air cleaner lid with the airflow meter.

5 Remove the four securing bolts and separate the airflow meter from the air cleaner lid (see illustration). Recover the seal.
