Hi I need a new MAF, yes I could go direct to MB, but we all know the difference in price for the same part, by the same manufacturer. Which make of MAF should I buy and where is a good place to buy it. The wiring to my MAF is Delphi, but I cannot see the make of MAF with out taking it off.

My car is a 2005 E200 Estate.

They’re usually made by Bosch.

Try calling MB Grangemouth, they’re surprisingly reasonable and in many cases the cheapest source of service parts for my car.

Don't be tempted by a cheap one. I'd use Bosch or MB.

If when I take it off, it is a different make, could I also buy that make?

You could do, but as you’re replacing it because it failed - how long has it been in situ?

15 years believe it or not. I think amazing for a MAF.

Answered your question. original lasted 15 years. In the long term price difference is negligible for quality.

Hi yes I understand that, as I said above. I will take it off tomorrow and see.

Yes, but it has been on the car 15yrs. It may be bosch.
Mine had its original MAF sensor for 15 years. Replaced prior to failure...
