    It looks like there is a drive on the end of the stepper motor so I'm wondering if whatever that the stepper motor moves may be stuck. Does the plunger just move in and out or does it rotate?

    Thanks for the offer Garry. That's too kind. It will be a few weeks at least before I'm able to travel with the car unfortunately. I'm balls deep in few jobs on it at the moment, and once those are done I need some welding for the MOT.

    Hi Tony, yes the motor can be adjusted manually, thanks for the tip. Maybe I can warm it up, then adjust the stepper motor manually, then with it unplugged adjust the idle screw. Hopefully it works better now I have replaced the o-ring. I'm also going to a local community repair group on Saturday to have my MAF PCB repaired, how great is that! P.S. do you know what it is that the stepper motor is moving?

    Thanks guys, thats bad news. I followed the instructions that were included with the stepper motor. I will look into getting a cable and evoscan. It never ends...

    yes its possible. I had an issue the same as OP that that happened once, but the car has been off the road for the last month. I also seem to have an issue where the revs are not raising as I would expect on cold mornings, which made think it was a MAF issue. I also had a strange experience when changing the idle speed stepper motor, the instructions said to turn the speed adjuster screw all the way in and hold the rpms at 2000 until the engine was warm. then back it out the 650rpm. ...

    Well I've run the test as instructed. The resistance value at 20c was good and it changed as i heated it, although i'm not to confident on how accurate my probe thermometer is measuring air temp. It seemed slow to react. So the upper reading wasn't bang on. So maybe my diode is ok. Bit strange, i might take it to be looked at anyway.

    Much as the title suggests, lol. Backstory, the VR4 is coming out to play if it likes it or not. Lots of work done, car now starts and runs. No charge tho, and no battery warning light at any point. Also an electrical unhappiness smell, burning silicon gubbins, you may know it well, inside the car after connecting battery and turning ignition on... Obviously the alternator would be a first call, but they are hardly a drop out and drop in job. So I cheated slightly, removed the cables...

    Thanks for the offer Garry much appreciated. I spoke to Mike at viamoto recently and he mentioned the diode was faulty on his brothers legnum. I've done a diode test with a multimeter and I think the diode itself maybe faulty. The test guide instructed to remove one side of the diode for the circuit before performing the test which I was unable to do however, so I am not 100% sure if that is the issue. There are some PCB repair shops near me so I will try and get it looked at once they open...

    Hi Tony, I had a potential MAF fault recently and came across this thread I've had a a look at the circuit board as you suggested. I'm not really sure what to look for when you say crystalised solder. I've taken some pictures there does seem to be some brown stuff as you can see. Notably a couple of the tabs on the cover were broken so it looks as if someone may have been in before. I've taken some pictures maybe you can suggest if these solders need redoing. Thanks Steve.

    Hi. I am about to pick up a super vr4 this weekend. But the steering wheel is a standard one. Are you still recovering with the red trim?
