tweeking with air mass meter?

I was doing some general repairs on my 74 1.8 and my father dropped my air mass meter (taking out a chunk of my paint as well rrr) anyways after that it is rubbing on the inside flap moves freely for about 1/2 the way then rubs and then is free for the rest of the movement. But after it passes that rubbing point it wont return to close when i let off the throttle. SOO... My question is can i open the bottom of this thing and solve my problem. I know it is not recomended to split these thing open but they also say that we cant rebuild rear calipers. so can i gat away with it. If i remember PP has them for about 125 with a core. SO i guess if i am just generally screwed then i can just fork over the cash but i would like to see if i can fix what i have considering it is just a mechanical problem. thanks


P.S. Off the topic what was the last year porshe stopped making air cooled engines? I was chatting with a friend about this and wanna see who is right. ok thats it for now

You can try tweaking your vane airflow unit, but I would suggest having another on hand. The vane is pretty sensitive (likes to stick).

I look up the OE tomorrow and see if I have a used - useable one (or post the OE on yours and I'll see if I can match it).
