I had a silmilar problem with my 2005 1.4 16V always stalling after start up. I removed and cleaned the MAP sensor and connector and it seems to have fixed my problem. Thanks for the tip. Mine also has no screws holding it. BTW the MAP sensor picture that is coming up in all the forum threads here looks nothing like the sensor in my car. If I do a search on Ebay I find the same one as I have. That added a bit of confusion for me when I was trying to locate this sensor on my engine.
