    Mass Air flow Meter price and strange noise???

    Hi, I've just had the 40K service on my car (cam belt and all).

    However they've reported that the Mass Air Flow Meter needs replacing (The engine management light had flashed on a few times and its been stalling whilst idling, so asked for a tech 2). They want £200 to replace the thing, is this about right? or can I just go to any decent back street garage to get it replaced cheaper (any guesses on price?).

    Also there has been a slight intermittent rumble noise under slow speed breaking and a squeal coming from the front wheel after I've been on the motorway for 20 mins or so. They checked everything they could think of and the problem is still there. Has anyone got any ideas?

    Any help or info would be much appreciated as my wallet is currently a lot lighter and both the problems I had before the service remain

    oh the car is an Astra G 1.8 SXI (W Reg no ABS) if that helps

    Cheers
    Kev

    The most expensive part of repairing a car can sometimes be the fault diagnosis. As they have already done this for you I recomend contacting LMF for a price on the airflow meter and fit it yourself. Its quite easy and could save you a fair bit of money

    It's a doddle removing the old AMM.

    Just undo the two hose clips on both ends and remove the plug.
