Question about Volkswagen Jetta
Hi this sounds more like one of the speed sensors might be u/s you have one on the rear hub and front hub, you can do this yourself if you have the tools, its a simple job of removing the old and putting the new in, Determine whether you need to replace the front or rear wheel speed sensor if you cant just replace both,place a jack under the car in the correct position and raise it. With the car supported, take off the tire and wheel assembly,detach the wheel speed sensor wiring connector just a small plug that goes into the hub area,use a wrench or a ratchet and socket set to loosen and detach the wheel bearing housing bolt. To remove the rear wheel speed sensor, you need to remove the nut from the stub axle,pull the wheel speed sensor out of the wheel bearing housing, if it is rusty, spray some wd40 on it and leave for a while, if that does not still make it come out, just litghtly tap it with a hammer to loosen it,Clean the area with a wire brush and lubricate it with lubricant wd40. You may want to cover the wheel bearing housing to prevent debris from entering the hole where the wheel speed sensor goes, or just put a piece of rag in the hole, Insert the new wheel speed sensor by pushing it in if it does not go in easy, clean around the hole some more, do not hit the new sensor as that will damage it, then just reinstall the components you removed. If you have a torque wrench, tighten the wheel bearing housing bolt to 70 inch pounds (8 Nm). hope that helps..phewww
