Is it ok to just remove the sensor by disconnecting cable, and removing two hex screws to clean, rather than taking the complete body unit out to?

No points cleaning it, you will probably have a split hose under the air box if you have airmass fault.

Don't know off the top of my head, you can usually hear a vacuum sucking sound from under the airbox, the fault code is aways points to the airmass when the pipe splits, disconnecting air masses proves nothing.
