On the outer end of the cv joint is where you can find it.It is a ring of "teeth" where the abs sensor picks up its reading from. They are known for cracking or the teeth to get damaged making the abs system throw a wobbly not knowing if abs is required at a given point or not.

Can you explain this please ?
Come on Lates you know as well as I do that's a fallacy. Brake judder or what is commonly called warped discs is infact irregularities on the disc surface. This is caused by the brakes overheating to form cementite on the surface of the disc.

Wether it is caused by cementite or run out the final result is still the same, Excessive run out on the dti gauge with one easy solution - throw them away and fit new.

If it is a cracked reluctor ring the ABS will cut in (pedal vibrates), but no lights are displayed on the dash.

If it happens a lot, remove the ABS fuse and try it on a car park.

Expensive to get fixed ?? Oooo MMmmmm possibly maybe - still for sale :dddc:









Only playing with you sorry, If it is a reluctor ring then a straight forward cv joint change will rectify. Not overly pricey.
