Re: Replacement of LF wheel speed sensor
I know this is really old, but I just ran into this problem and had to take out both the right and left speed sensor to fix them.
Its (6) 10mm bolts. This first is at the speed sensor towards the front of the vehicle behind the wheel. This first one needs a flat head placed behind with a slight twist to get it off after the bolt comes out.
You can then follow them all the way up into the engine compartment. Every time you pull one of the bolts it will free up a bit of cable to the next bracket with a bolt.
In between the second and third bolt there is a clip which requires a pair of pliers behind it to release it.
On the drivers side there is also a clip between the last two bolts in line, you can release this one with your fingers.
Once out, the breaks in mine were at the 90 degree bend in the cable. I shaved back the sheathing with a blade, found the breaks, and then soldered a wire with some heat shrink to re-establish continuity.
When i put them back in all the lights went away
$500+ dollars saved in parts and labor, nobody wants to fix broken things anymore... not everything has to be replaced.
