it takes a T-something screw. Not sure what size, there are two of them. Then you just pull it out, kind of hard to screw up unless you do not pull straight out

Why do you want to check on a part you aren't sure of where it is at or how to get it out?

Yes I know, and I am one who asks questions on diy. But I wouldn't ask a question about how to check something that I didn't know where it was or how it is held in. If their was something wrong with my car I wouldn't just jump to MAF sensor. I am just curious

He's checking as to whether or not he has a weak MAF. There doesn't necessarily mean something has to be wrong.

You have to push down on the tab to release the "locking mechanism" then it should just pull off.
