Removal & Installation



Front
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2.  
  3. Remove the front wheel and tire assemblies.
  4.  
  5. Remove the front mud guard and splash shield, if necessary to access the speed sensor wiring.
    WARNING
    During removal, be careful when handling the projection at the tip of the speed sensor and the toothed edge of the ABS rotor so they are not damaged.

  6.  
  7. Remove the bolts and the front ABS speed sensor.

To install:

  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  2.  
  3. Once the sensor is installed, perform the sensor check, as follows:
    1. Check to see if any metallic foreign debris is stuck to the projection at the speed sensor tip. Remove all foreign material. Also check to see if the pole piece is damaged. Replace with a new one if it-s damaged.
      NOTE
      The projection can become magnetized because of the magnet located inside the ABS wheel speed sensor, causing foreign debris to easily adhere to it. The projection may not be able to correctly sense the wheel rotation speed if there is foreign debris on it or if it is damaged.

    2.  

  4.  
  5. Measure the resistance between the speed sensor terminals. The proper range is 1.24-1.64 kilo-ohms.
  6.  
  7. If the internal resistance of the speed sensor falls outside of the range, replace it with a new sensor.

    Fig. Measure the resistance between the speed sensor terminals

    1. Remove all connections from the speed sensor. The circuit should be open between terminals (1) and (2) and the body of the speed sensor. If the circuit is not open, replace with a new sensor.
    2.  
    3. Check the speed sensor cable for breakage, damage or disconnection. Replace with a new one if a problem is found.
      NOTE
      When checking for cable damage, remove the cable clamp part from the body and then gently bend and pull the cable near the clamp.
