hi all hope someone can help recently got a 307 off a family member who couldn't afford to put it through mot when driving it home i had a a.b.s fault straight away from start up.

since then i have installed new:

clutch drive-shafts(second hand) drop links lower ball joints track rod ends front discs and pads rear pads and changed the wheels over as the old ones were extreamly low

after all this started the car and same as before got the a.b.s fault drove it just to end of road and got the warning !! STOP !! BRAKING FAULT does anyone have any ideas what can be or is anyone near sg19 gamlingay that has peugeot planet that can diagnose for me? (would pay of coarse)

thanks in advance

yes it will. depends how bad it is. mine only showed abs fault. but changed to flashing stop on the dash.

make sure when you take the wheels off you soak the bolts holding on the rear calipers and bolts to take the whole hub off. its easier to get behind the sensor. and to clean the magnet on the back of the hub.

the bolts are too long and rust so there a pain to get out

I have found you do not need to remove disc's you can get to rear sensor allen bolt through hole in disk face. I have done both of my sensors this way. Removed sensor cleaned backplate and then put a bead of glue from hot glue gun on front back edge of sensor, cleaned back of bearing with cloth and refitted and tweaked to get about 1mm gap from sensor to bearing face (looking down behind disk) and 100% working:)

It is possible to clean the abs sensor mounting surface without removing anything but the wheel and sensor. Sensor bolt can be unscrewed through a wheel bolt hole

307

still havent had chance to get out there and clean up yet how did you adjust the gap did you use washers or something ? cheers for the help

with the engine running if i disconnect a sensor should it bring up error because on one side (drivers side) as soon as disconnected comes up with braking fault with both front and rear but on passengers side nothing :confused::confused:

if there disconnected it will throw up the faults more

people have used washers. i managed to take the hub off and clean behind the sensor. i used a chisel and a hammer. it didnt look rusty until i kept chipping away

you will know if its ok. it will fit flush and will be perfectally inline with the wheel hub

I just used a blob of glue from hot glue gun on the back of the sensor on the point closest to the bearing this causes the sensor to swing foward slightly when tightened a friend did his buy cutting up a plastic card (shell fuel club card in his case) to make a little spacer to go behind sensor

did you get all the rust off the hub and behind the sensor. dont forget it reads the inner part of the hub.

when i did mine and started up straight away it showed abs fault. once i moved off it went off.

mine was pulsating when braking really bad. i could tell it was fixed straight away

When I did mine it took a couple of attempts. I first used a wire brush but progressed to a metal file.

And clean up all the parts and check the sensors and wiring for damage.
