ABS sensor alternatives.

Post by frog »

Hi all,

Can anyone confirm or deny that 405 and series one Xantia's have the same ABS sensor as the BX? I understand the connectors are different.

I have already re-wired my sensors once before and that has only lasted a couple of years.

That is interesting. I have heard that the early 405 sensors work as well with the correct connector.
So all is not lost yet as long as we can source Xantia or 405 sensors. I wonder if both front and rears are compatible though.
