    Default Cost of ABS Sensor Fix?

    Hi Guys,

    Typical as I am putting my car up for sale in a week or so, that the ABS light came on.

    Garage put diagnostics on - Offside front ABS sensor. Apparently is comes as part of the wheel hub and cannot be replaced by itself.

    Been quoted either £158 or £182 all in depending on which of the two it is.

    Its a Vectra 2.2 Direct 56 Plate.

    Has anyone any experience of this and if this is reasonable?

    Cheers

    That's cost of the hub from Vx alone it doesn't sound too bad

    It may well be the sensor in which case it is a hub replacement job as stated above, but also check the wiring and connector under the wheelarch for damage/water ingress respectively.

    The warning light will go off when the fault condition disappears.

    Whereabouts is the connector located? I might try and have a look before giving the garage the go ahead to do the hub.

    no mate its the O/S , its on a clip on the inside wheel arch / strut driver side .
    just unplug the white connector an check it out . it goes to a short wire to the rear of the hub , there is a way to check voltage through this but I'd need to look as I dont know off hand ...... drink lol

    The cable is about a tenner from VX.

    If it is the hub then

    Thanks again for the replies.

    I've had a look and the cable doesn't show any sign of damage and the connection is dry as a bone inside.

    Looks like it is the sensor.

    2 years of suffering nothing apart from a snapped coil spring then 5 weeks before my company car comes I get a £180 repair to do.

    I think they call that sods law :/
