Q: MAF wires eaten

asked by on

It looks like the MAF wires were eaten by a squirrel or rat.

Hi. Rodents do find their way into the engine compartment occasionally and cause havoc. A trained professional can fix your problem either by soldering/crimping the wires, or by replacing the harness. They can also inspect for other electrical problems present and replace failing components.
