Hi folks, my 1.8 C30 hasn't been loving starting up for a little while, occasionally it'll take a few extra turns on the starter motor then once it fires up it idles super low until I tickle the gas pedal then it springs into life.

My guess is this is possibly a dirty/dying MAF sensor but I cannot find the damn thing...

It seems that most models have it in a perfectly sensible spot, i.e. right next to the airbox but I had a root around this morning and I can't see anything there.

I've managed to hunt down a VIDA diagram for a different C30 that showed the MAF sensor in the normal place but mine doesn't seem to have it there (unless I'm being exceptionally stupid).

Anyone able to give me some clues?
