In my service book it's got "Hot-Film Air Mass Meter replaced (engine 612.990)" 50k miles/4 years

Does that mean the Maf/Mas should be changed at those intervals wether there is a problem or not ?

No, it's not a service item. Just needs replacing when it's duff....

Mine hasn't been replaced but on the recommended additional work it says 50k miles/4 years.
Also where the Service Stamp goes, there are the little boxes to be ticked for spark plugs, brake fluid etc there is a box for "Hot-Film Air Mass Meter"

I have never had a MAF replaced at a specific interval and to be honest I don't know anyone else who has either. Why replace something like that if it's working fine, you will soon know if there is a problem with it.
