Well seems i was counting my chickens :lol:. Things have been quite on the car front lately till last week when i had a intermittent brake pad wear warning.

Front pads and discs where replaced in March/April so thought it was just a loose connection so was just going to wait till this week being backshift to take the car back to the fast fit center to check the wiring on the front and the rear (looked ok ?)to be replaced if needed.

So this evening going to park up and the esp/abs fault warning happens. Went back out later to try it still the same. So while waiting for the laptop battery to charge up so i can put planet on. To see what the score is ? was wondering if worn pads may have caused this ? or a sensor. Any advice ?, seams to drive ok from what i can see and feel !. How much would a ball park be if the sensors gone and is it worth doing both sides at the one time !.

Hi, its not always a new sensor - it may be a cracked reluctor ring or just a build up of rust/dirt getting in the grooves.

I would check this out first as it is free to look at them, I believe sensors are around £25 each but can be troublesome to fit.

No need to do both sides, PP2000 will pinpoint the one with the issue.

Yeh old laptop finally charged, so went out and ran it with the item below coming up.



question is that passenger side or drivers :lol:

Have had to have abs rings replaced in my old santa fe before came in about £200 at the dealer to have both front rings replaced at the time. There is a pug specialist in Boness or the dealer nearby. But would it be best to have both doen at the same time rather than just one ?

Do it yourself. It isn't hard. The sensors aren't expensive either. Although the rear rhs can be a pain due to the fuel tank.
I got 2x for £20ish delivered. Still have a spare one too, in case my new 407 needs it.

Planet takes it your sat in drivers seat so that'd be rear passenger side.

If it was me I'd do both rear at same time, nothing worse than the other one going a few weeks later and having to drop the tank again or pay for the labour twice. Or even have the sensor routed but not connected ready to be swapped over when other fails, cable tie it out the way and in a bag to keep it clean, then it just a matter of connecting it above fuel tank, swapping over on the hub and snipping the wire on the old one.

That is exactly what was going through my mind:thumb: which is why i though both :)
