SOURCE: I'm preparing to remove front right axle shaft (Cv half shaft)

It is held in by a spring ring. You need a good strong pry bar and you position it between the hub of the axel and the case of the trans and **** hard pulling it out. It sometimes is seated well, but keep trying. It will fight you sometimes.

Hope this helps.

Wheel sensor

Tone rings are a break for the magnetic field produced by the sensor if you have to much air gap you would get a erratic signal if the tone wheel is broken any where this will produce a fault or failure, if the sensor fails same result.a scanner can read this signal if the sensor can produce it other wise you may have a open circuit usual failure is the sensor.

Front passenger side broken axle

Need to replace the drive shaft. Aftermarket parts work fine. The biggest issue is removing inside connection to the half shaft. The clip ring tension is stronger than the boot holding the inboard joint on the drive shaft. To break it loose get a large screw driver and from under the car in front hit the inboard joint hard several times until it over comes the clip ring. Remember... always use jack stands when working under the car.

2008 Escape has a terrible reputation for ABS light and traction control light being. All due to broken ABS tone ring cracked and out of position flopping on frt bearing. Go to local AutoZone store and they will scan this to find which wheel has the broken tone ring. The replacement ring is cheap in the $7 range. It is labor that will sicken you as this ring must be pressed on after the front half shaft is removed. Not a driveway job if you are considering DYI.

Hi, you have gremlins. First of all, check your brake fluid level. This may or may not be related to the ABS and TC lights. Those are casued by wheel speed sensor issues. Check all the sensors and tone rings. Look for hydraulic leaks also while you're checking the sensors. Fix any broken wires. Make sure sensors are centered on tone rings. Especially a problem with the front, where the tone ring is on the half-shafts that were removed for the tranny work. Make sure the axles HAVE tone rings on them!!!
Fix any brake leaks and bleed the brakes. Let me know if you need any instructions on that work.

Check to make sure the ground strap from the battery to the engine and from the engine to the chassis is on and tight.
Which lights are staying on?
For the radio, check the speakers using another radio or use the one speaker that works to check the wires for the rest of them.
I'm willing to help, but someone's going to have to get their hands dirty to fix all these problems...and it can't be me 'cause I'm only virtual.
Are you up for it?

How do I replace the front wheel bearing on a Passat 97-00. I have removed, wheel and brake assembly.

First you need to untight the half shaft nut, than detach all ball joints (4 of them), than you remove the hub from the half shaft, you will actually need to have a press (about 12ton min) to press the bearing out and press new one in, don't try to hammer it as you can possibly damage the hub and than you will need to buy new one (or second hand). After getting it pressed in you basically need to put it back and reverse the whole process of dismantling.

The ABS sensor are attached to the brake backing plate assemblies and tone rings are pressed on the axle shaft. Use care when removing axle shaft as NOT to damage the tone wheel or the sensor.

In the ZJ-Secc-5-Brakes (page 25) can find information about the sysrtem and sensors location.

I really hope helped with this; remember rated this help. Good luck.

Where is the speed sensor on a 2001 kia sportage located?

The speed sensors are a single pole, variable reluctance sensor, mounted to the rear axle housing and both front half shafts.

A toothed tone ring is press fit to the differential carrier next to the drive gear and provides the signal for the rear sensor.

The front tone rings are press fit to the half shaft assemblies
