Default 2000 a4 1.8t quatro MAF

So I recently got this car 2000 (11/99) a4 1,8t quatro. The only problem it seems to have is a rough idle.
I looked at the 1.8t FAQ and read that it's most likly:

Rough Running At Idle - MAF, Ignition Coil, Spark Plug, VAC Leak, O2 Sensor, TB, CTS

I'm no car machanic but i'm fairly technicaly inclined (just dont' have the car experince) and i've looked around an searched the fourms (found a post but all the images where dead) and just haven't found right where my MAF senor is to remove and clean it.well I basicly do. I see where the hose comes out of the air box and runs down to where I assume it is, but I want to be sure before I start taking things apart and also want to make sure i'm taking the right things apart. is it better to get at it from underneath, I haven't jacked it up to look at it from that side.

Thanks in advance for the help.

the maf is in the intake box on the passanger side of the engine. take the top of the box off and you will see the maf on the inside. its a round peice of plastic with a sensor on the inside. spray it down with some electrical cleaner
welcome to the forums by the way

Thanks man.
For some reason I thought the MAF would be at the end of the hose not the begining.
