Removed sensor and cleared of debris still not cleared fault is it worth changing sensor and do I need to have amber/yellow lights reset with code machine or will they reset with new sensor if that is the fault. After removal of offside wheel two tools needed 10 mm to remove nut holding cap on sensor and 13 mm to remove post holding sensor in place tip lubricant a big help. images provided

Looking at new ones online looks like a piece of metal protrudes from the centre of the sensor towards the pickup gear/wheel perhaps mine has corroded off and needs a replacement anyone confirm?

That thought passed my mind Gray as I was contemplating my navel waiting for the part. The offside wheel is the only one I have checked the ring appeared ok. Tomorrow I will have a look at the nearside front. I think I will be unlucky if more than one has totally corroded but worth a check. How many sensors are used on the ABS system? only two required surely for equilibrium.

Removed rear sensors and cleared of brake dust on sensor and ring but will have to show on a separate topic because Jpeg limit reached on the thread

A Lexia scanner should show which Sensor is causing the fault, if you have someone near you with one...

Yes Gray I clarified it was the offside sensor with a laptop OBD but as I said there was visual evidence too of scraping away of sensor head. I obtained a sensor online for front offside it arrived at 12:30 it was wrong part I ordered one at local factors it arrived at 14:30 Bosch. fitted it and noticed it too was scraping caused by the disc wheel activator. Removed and placed a thin washer between sensor fixiing hole and bolt post that holds it to give clearance from the rotating disc activator it is working fine now and all other sensors nicely refurbished and brake deposits cleared. BTW it is a size 30 Torx for removing rear sensor. will post pics when I can upload them problem with software now not my week.

sorry to jump in on thread

just got this ABS non work error on my pic

with IGN on no fail, but as soon as wheels turn ABS non working fail lights up

did plug in my lappy & used Lexia, but showed no fault ( think I needed to turn the wheels first)

should Lexia tell me which side the fault is on, 

thanks

Yes the laptop should advise of which sensor is faulty. Have you looked at them all? could be a build up of dust on the discs that the sensor detects from.
