The proper procedure is not at all crude.
The PVC cap on the sensor (part # 437 927 809) is a one-time ablative. The
microfiche is quite explicit - the cap _MUST_ be discarded when the sensor is
removed, and replaced with a new one. The sensor is then replaced and pushed
in until it _touches_ the rotor. Obviously, the cap gets partly worn off as
soon as the vehicle moves - but the thickness of the _NEW_ cap sets the sensor
gap very accurately indeed.
