Forgive the shout out but still trying to source a rear drivers side ABS sensor for my BX19 TZi estate. Anybody have one or any clues. Cheers., Phil

These are very difficult to find as you have no doubt discovered.
I presume you have tried to probe the cable to see if there is a break somewhere. If you find one you can splice in replacement cable. The cable is usually what fails due to the continual flexing or the external sleeving can crack allowing moisture ingress followed by corrosion inside the cable.
I have repaired several of mine in this way.

Testing is simple, just put a meter across the coax plug and measure something near 1000 ohms to prove its a good'un.
They are not handed but almost impossible to remove from the arm with terminal damage.
