To install:


WARNING
Be sure that cables are installed, routed, and clipped properly. Failure to install speed sensor cables properly may result in contact with moving parts or an over extension of cables causing an open circuit.


NOTE
When installing the sensor head to the spring-loaded retainer on the hub and bearing, make sure the head is held snug in the retainer. If there is any play, the clip is deformed and the hub and bearing must be replaced. The retainer is not serviced separately.

  1. Clip the wheel speed sensor head (flat side to bearing rear face) into the spring-loaded retainer on the rear of the hub and bearing.
  2.  
  3. Position the wheel speed sensor on the trailing link and install the screw securing it in place. Tighten the mounting screw to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  4.  
  5. Position the wheel speed sensor and install the routing clip fastening the sensor to the trailing link.
  6.  
  7. Position the wheel speed sensor cable routing clamp on the rear suspension crossmember and install the mounting screw. Tighten the mounting screw to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  8.  
  9. Install the speed sensor cable routing clip on the outside frame rail.
    NOTE
    When inserting the wheel speed sensor cable through the hole in the body, route the cable toward the shock tower to make it easier to grasp the cable to connect it to the body wiring harness connector in a later step.

  10.  
  11. Insert the wheel speed sensor cable through the hole in the body and install the grommet in the hole.
  12.  
  13. Install the rear wheel.
  14.  
  15. Lower the vehicle.
  16.  
  17. Through the opening in the bottom of the quarter trim panel, connect the wheel speed sensor cable connector to the body wiring harness connector.
