Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Is It hard for a car owner to replace Abs Sensors himself. I have a 2000 VW Passat. Codes were run and said it was the sensors. Thanks, John
They're a pain because they press into the hub. Some of them have a retaining bolt, others don't. The problem is that heat in the hub, from rolling friction in the wheel bearing and brake system heat transfer causes them to seize in place. The only way I've been able to remove them is to remove the end axle bolt that holds the axle in place, pivot the upright to gain access to the inside of the upright from behind, and tap the sensor out. You have to be careful not to damage it, and it helps a lot to spray some PB Blaster or penetrating oil in there to help loosen things up. If you try to pry or lever it out from the wire end of the sensor, you WILL destroy it.
