While replacing the right front wheel bearing (needed 15 metric tons of pressure to remove) the ABS sensor suffered a minor accident.

If only it had been the other side, where I replaced the sensor a year ago, but the other one which was sop stuck i didn't even try to get it out of the way.
The sensors are damn hard to find. The car is a ph2 2.5 '96, the sensor is of a type with a small metal pin protruding out of it.

Does anyone happen to have a spare one?

I haven't tried it yet, but i doubt it works. The pin is squashed flat but it is intact. I will try to bend it back to the original position and keep my fingers crossed...

Miraculously the sensor still works.

The pin was squeeded flat and pressed into the plastic moulding. I was able to bend it back in it's original place and then cut off the excess 3mm of the pin because it was so deformed. And it works.

Too bad i didn't take any pictures of the mess :D

I'd be surprised if you could even get the old sensor out properly - those screws have a habit of rounding out and then being completely stuck!

I had no problem getting the screw out, but the sensor was completely stuck in its place.

After changing the right bearing the left one appears to be bad too. I changed the left sensor just last year so i i really hope it will come out nicely...
