How do you remove the ABS speed sensor from the front wheel carrier? I removed the screw, but the sensor won't budge. Seems incredibly tight for an electric sensor, maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Also, once out, any tricks to reinserting it??

Thanks in advance...

One bolt and remove. Likely corroded in place. Careful twisting and pulling.

Install tips.

Before installation, ensure that there are no metal chips at the magnetic edge of the speed sensor.

The gap between speed sensor and pulse wheel is determined by the design and cannot be adjusted.

There is no O-ring between speed sensor and wheel carrier.

1. Coat speed sensor and the bore in the wheel carrier with Molykote Longterm 2.

2. Without using excessive force, insert speed sensor into wheel carrier and tighten the hexagon socket head bolt to 7.5 ftlb.

3. Test with Durametric or PST2 oe PIWIS tester.

Thanks Loren. Agree it looks corroded. I think I need a bigger hammer!
