ABS Sensor

Post by reanimation » Mon Sep 18, 2006 3:47 pm

Thinking ahead here, How easy/hard is an ABS sensor to fix? Bearing in mind techy advanced cars are new to me!

can you get off the shelf parts to fix it, or is trial and error parts off ebay or scrappys?

using imagination, i guess its four wires from brakes connecting to some 'computer' trying to read if its working. hell i dont have a clue summat like that. :?: :oops: :lol:

Its a popular thing isnt it, whats usually the case/cause/fix? cheers
The O/H is sick of hearing about BX's! :( And aparently Xantias are 'Didsbury cars' LOLZ

The sensor itself is easy. Just fixed into the strut/arm by a bolt or two and a plug. Just handle with care when fitting and make sure the area is clean. I usually disconnect the battery while doing it too, to allow the ECU to do a minor reset just in case the light stays on.
