check whether u r actually getting a spark on each cylinder, if not the its likely the coil-pack if u have already done plugs and leads....

if u r getting 6 sparks then u can start looking elsewhere

get a couple of crocodile clips and bolt them together, attach one end to a solid metal part of the engine to get a good earth... remove one spark plug and hold it with other end of the croc-clips around the threads... plug it into the HT lead and turn over the engine to see if theres a spark...

its prolly better to do this in the evening when its dark so its easier to see the spark

also when i unplugged the air flow sensor the car still started eventually would this mean the air flow meter is knackered

AFAIK the engine should run w/o the maf attached, the fact that it runs does not prove there is a problem with the maf

Perhaps its broken.... Cleaning isn't going to fix it, If its coming up as hall sensor on vag.com or on a scanner then id change it for a new one personally.. Find out how much one is and if its not to pricey change it
