Default ***How-To*** Check & Clean Your Rear ABS Wheel Sensor

If you have an abs light on consistently and you check the code and it says rear wheel sensor, it may not be damaged, but just need to be cleaned. So to check if yours in dirty follow this article and it may solve your problem.

Tools Required:
Ratchet
10mm
Short Extension
Jack
Jack Stands
Wheel Lock
Rag or Paper Towels

1) First start by removing the rear wheel for either passenger or driver side depending on which one you start with. Make sure to support your car on jack stands and not just the jack.

2) Locate the abs wheel sensor which is directly mounted onto the hub closest to the ground.

3) Then remove the one 10mm bolt that holds the cover over the abs sensor circled in yellow.

Holy rusted as ****, batman. You would probably have to use soap and water to get any metallic (magnetized) flakes off of the sensor. You would probably also want to check your connector and clean the pins as necessary. If you're getting a code, it's unlikely, but still possible that your tone ring is cracked or chipped. Might as well check that while you're at it. But good write-up, nonetheless.
