After removing the wheel, pop the dust cap off of the center of the spindle, revealing the front axle nut. Remove the nut and washer. Remove the brake caliper and hang it with some wire or whatever you have on hand. (to keep from damageing the flex line). Now, BE CAREFUL, you now have to remove the abs sensor. It is held on with an allen bolt. (metric size) CAREFULLY lift the sensor up and out of the well in the bearing housing. THEY CAN BREAK EASILY so hold your mouth right! Now, the worst could be over... But not always! There are three bolts behind the backing plate that need to be removed, after which the entire spindle should simply fall out. One of mine did, but the other...well it was so froze-up that my gear puller actually pulled the bearing assembly apart rather than pulling the whole assembly off. (The bearing assembly halves are put together with a press!)Speaking of that, if the assembly co-operates and falls off it will have to be pressed apart. There is a tapered bearing and a roller bearing inside. You can usually have the pressing done at a local machine shop. (unless of course you have a press of your very own.) For re-assembly try holding this document in the mirror.

this sensor is is built into the hub bearing, the bearing must be replaced to replace the abs sensor, 99% of sensor fault is due to worn bearing. the sensor is on the hub follow the abs wire to sensor from wheel area, some model sensor is bolted into bearing and can be replaced with bearing, make sure there is no play in wheel or new sensor will go bad, heres a picture of the complete hub and also of just the sensor. note there are four sensors one on each wheel, a scan tool will tell you which one is bad.good day.johnjohn2_116.jpgjohnjohn2_117.jpg

How do you change rear wheel bearings on a 2001 intrigue


Front wheel drive! Pull rear tire and the brakes shoes or disk need to be removed. There will be a plate bolted in the the rear hub which does hold the bearing and seal in place. Remove the plate. Now the bearing is pressed in the hub race. May need a bearing puller. Once out, replace with new seal. Take your time installing the bearing, Its very tight and could damage it by tapping too hard to get it in. Just reverse
procedure to complete. It's a hard job - You may want to call around and get estimates for the repair. May be well worth it - Good luck

Bad sensor in one wheel, they are part of the wheel bearing. Could also be a bad abs computer module, either way, not cheap.
