As the fault has gone intermittent I guess that means the MAF readings have been ok for a period of time?

    Anyways garage weren't overly interested when I turned up today with no warning light on, they did read the codes out and found the same (16485 intermittent). They said it could even be the sensor getting used to being able to breath again after the new air filter? If there is some long self calibration period maybe that's why it was cross at first but hasn't reported any 'implausible' readings since?

    Thanks

    just do an ECU reset yourself with Vagcom, it might just end all your probs-all it do's is reset all back to factory defaults-then the car starts to learn how it is being driven and starts ajusting as it needs to !!

    Thanks vagnuts didnt realise there was a reset option like that. Think I'll poke around with the mechanical suggestions first and if that's all in order but then the fault comes back to haunt us I'll give that reset a go.
