I'll endorse Kent's comments here.
If the AFM is faulty, bin it!

When I was looking at my first SD1 to buy, my Rover mechanic at the time 
  gave me two pieces of advice:-
1. Determine the sludge factor - remove a rocker cover if possible.
2. Tampering evident with the Flapper unit - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!

Wise advice.
