    Get it plugged into a code reader, mine was doing this and it ended up being the air flow meter, check the fault codes first though.

    The sensor in the hub is fecked, you'll need to replace the hub, about £90 delivered then just the fitting to either do yourself or pay for a garage to do.

    Do a search, it's been covered laods and loads.

    Sounds more likely to be the AFM then, you got any symptoms i.e less power, trying to stall, dodgy on idle??

    come to think of it the idle does seem to be a abit dodgy, same with the power, if the afm has gone will this make the car run lean/rich is it a asap job

    Not too much of a desperate job but you ought to get it done - I know of peole who have had the symptoms for months and hadn't change them till they actually broke altogether and they had to get it on Tech2....

    You will use more petrol mate as the car will go into a set mode so you can't harm the engine - you'll notice the difference once it's done - car will be smoother, idle better and you'll get some los tpower back

    Here I am going on I have my old one here only done about 10k miles as it was new just before I bought the Zaf in March - £35 inc postage if you want it?? Cheapest new price is £79 off ebay - no 2nd hand ones on there bar mine
