Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Please use the "Continue With This Expert" option and state which SENSOR you are trying to remove if it is not the ABS sensor.
IF you're removing the original sensor - its in there pretty good!. Basically rust-welded in place.
Shoot it down with penetrating oil and let it sit an hour or so... twist with a vicegrips and pull at the same time.
It is fair to assume you will need to install a new sensor. Dont be afraid to pull... and even pry on the plastic - it's pretty sturdy.
Sometimes I use a screwdriver as a pry bar - then as it reaches its limit - I turn to a chisel.
You haven't missed anything - its just a bear to get out.
Don't give up!!
Thanks for using FixYa :D
