Plan on cleaning my MAF sensor, but want to know the best place to purchase another incase the cleaning goes bad. I saw a lot of threads about cleaning them, and using a non residue electronics cleaner. Some use rubbing alcohol, and I wondered if there was anything bad about using it.

AAAAIIIIIEEEEE!!!
DO NOT USE RUBBING ALCHOHOL!!!!!!

Rubbing alchohol is only 70% alchohol - it has glycerin and other ingredients that will mess up your MAFS something awful. You need to find pure alchohol, like 98-99%. The better stores will stock this next to the rubbing alchohol.

Oh, to answer the question, I'd try Liberty VW, drewparts, parts4vws, or busdepot.com. Or the local dealer, but I bet they'd have to order it anyway, and they'd be more expensive. Be prepared to spend some $$$.
