Re: ABS Sensor

You need to replace the plastic spacer that goes on the end of the ABS wheel
speed sensor. These must be replaced if you pull the sensor out something
lots of shops overlook. You can get them from the dealer for about 1$ each.
You simply place one at the end of the sensor before inserting it=)
Good luck,
