does this need to be replaced or just cleaned

this is like a tiny lightbulb filament...easily broken....do not attempt to clean...these are relatively cheap...just replace it~

it's to let the computer know how dense the air is coming into the intake plenum....if cold will make the mix rich...if warm will know that too- again like a tiny filament~

i went to halfords and no crc cleaner can i use electrical contact cleaner to clean the mass flow sensor

yes...perchloroethane...or trichloroethane....radio snack also sells "electronics cleaner" which is a boat-load of money for what it actually is~ more importantly will it be gettin' buggered up again right away....there is excessive crankcase fumes in the intake....perhaps the Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve is plugged or malfunctioning~
