Re: re Re: ABS'ness

<< the teeth are on the hub, not axle, at least on type 44's.  I would 
recommend cleaning the teeth with a wire brush wheel on a drill or a dremel. 

On my type 44 the teeth are on the outer CV joint which is essentially part 
of the axle.

I haven't a clue what cleaning the teeth would do to the magnetic properties 
but don't quite understand how it would effect them.

As has been mentioned already, reseating the sensor with the abolative cap is 
the first step. If there is excessive rust build-up on the teeth I can see 
how that sensor gap may be larger than it should be even with the new cap. 
That is one area that cleaning off any excess rust may help.

I have also seen the teeth damaged by previous axle R&R that will cause the 
intermittent abs activation problems on a friend's car.

HTH clarify this.
