G'Day All,

Defender TD5 that a mate owns requires a new MAF Sensor. No worries, travel to the nearest dealer and pick one up for $420, (plus $110 to fit if required).

Now, is there a better way? Have heard you may be able to get these as a change-over part. Is there another importer who can supply at a lower cost?

Won't bother with the fitting, 10 mins and a screw driver according to the manual.

Any help appreciated

Regards

Rolande

G'day cobber

Exchange units or rebuilds are available. Now for the problem .. not sure where..
.. :o(

Try Graeme Cooper Auto (Sidiney) , MR Auto (Brisvegas), FWD Motors (Brisvegas)

I'd be surprised if Graeme Cooper either doesn't do it or doesn't know who does.

Cheers

G'Da Rosco,

Nice pic!

Will pass these on. New I would be on here asking Landy questions sooner or later with the number of them in the car park at work.

Thanks Again,

Rolande

Hi Rolande

Have you tried cleaning it, us Terrano 2 owners have a long history on this forum with MAS's,

I clean mine 2 times a year with "Electrical contact cleaner", Just by spraying it down from about 10 to 20cm with the direction tube on the spray can, just be carefull not to touch the little fillerments, very fragile, and if any dust ot lint sticks tothem they will burn out as soon as they get hot.

Doing this to mine restores performance evey time

Thanks for the tip.

There are a few Landyfiles at work so will throw it open to them to see what they can come up with.

OK this what i did first time i bought a new $347 fitted at Bruce Davis at Amaroo Pk in Sydney or now if i need one i go to the internet parts places overseas, England or the states from these places they are nearly 1/2 the price when inquiring they are called 02 sensors not MAF, or as suggested clean the one you have, it usually works, has for me twice so far, carby cleaner or electrical contact cleaners are the best for this, make sure you allow it to dry naturally DO NOT TOUCH THE ELEMENT AT ALL.

hope this helps
Baz.

Thanks for the tip Baz, will pass it on and see what we can come up with.

Have been on to Bearmach in the U.K. and a local supplier, they may be able to help

Photoman, sorry mate i have a TD5 Discovery so only have Landy online parts places but Google it thats how i found the Landy places.

I would type in 02 sensors and then Nissan should come up with something.
