      hi all,
      new to the forum, but not to vw's. i usually do basic maint. myself, and am getting bolder as problems arise.
      code p1152 i believe indicates a problem with the mass airflow sensor or possibbly a vacume leak. my question is, can the mass airflow sensor be clean like on toyotas or does it need replaced?
      thanks,
      mark

      There's a section on how to clean it in the 1.8T forum FAQ -

      seems pretty easy

      Your dealership should be replacing this part for you for free.
      They have a special extended warranty on it, rather than a recall.

      thanks for the link... this might be a dumb question, but i'll ask any way. would the maf be the same for the 1.8t and the regular 2.0?

      yeah... about that. i got the car from one of those used car lots. bought it "as is". they don't want to do anything.
      thanks though.

      i think its possible, i've seen people do it but dont quote me on it, i have a MAF from an Audi TT and never had problems

      I didn't buy my 2001 jetta from a VW dealer...I was having MAF issues and I just called the local VW dealer and all I had to do was let them do the diagnostic test to prove the MAF was bad. Then they replaced it for free!

      from what i've heard you may still want to replace it eventualy.. the MAF are prone to this problem ( early revisions anyway ) same with the coil packs ..

      seven years seventy thousand miles extended warranty on 1.8t and 2.0 mass airflow meters, regardless of owner.
      they are the same exact part, down to the part number. also, the TDI MAF is also the same part,......but a different part number and excluded from the recall. kinda like the earlier beetle and passat hazard switches are the same part (except for the cover) as the Jetta/GTI hazard switches, but again are not subject to recall despite going bad just as often.

      can you clean the MAF using that same technique for the vr6?

      thanks for the info. the cleaning didn't work so i went to a local dealer and he verified what you said. 7 yr or 70,000 mile extension on this part.
      thanks!!!!!!!!

      Cleaning does NOT work....it never does. the cost is so low, it's cheaper, and easier to just replace the MAF. $40 is not that much.
