You can clean the abs sensor mounting surface without removing the caliper and disc, by working trough a wheel mounting hole and behind the disc.

yeah i noted that, which would you recommend? rather do it properly but dont want to big a job but pretty handy with a spanner (my opinion) rather have it right, just my washer bottle to sort :-( great car mind...

My skills with tools aren't that bad too as a machine fitter, after hammering the rust flakes with hammer and a screwdriver i had been fond of, i used the end of a file as a scraper. at last i applied some copper grease at the surface to slow the new attack, that starts as soon as you stop scraping :mad:

RESULT! thanks to 'holt' + others for the advise took the sensors off cleaned off all the rust amazed how much there was, started with a hammer, then a chisel then a screwdriver then a small file and finished with some sand paper got it as clean as i could cleaned the sensors (carefully) put it all back together (carefully) and hey presto 19 miles later no ABS light :)

To add i did it without taking the disc off (fiddly) but much easier and all is well again
