Hi guys - if you can help - heard clicking when i turn under load and decided to change the right outer drive axel. The new part i got for my Freelander 1.8L petrol 4WD K-series 18K4F engine 86kw 117 hp is confirmed as a fit ! However on changing, i couldn't get the drive axel back into the hub the only way i could get it to go in properly was to take off the grided ring which the ABS is supposed to read for the ABS to work. With it on, i couldn't tight the out axel bolt to the correct position never mind spec. The old drive axel i took out had no 'grid'/ ladder ring on it but the ABS was fine - warnings. The code i get is C1034 which states on plugin computer as - 'right front wheel speed sensor periodic fault'. I have reopened everything and cleaned the sensor etc. Others i have talked to say i have damaged the ABS sensor on changing most likely, but how is it supposed to read if there is no ring in it, ans how was everything fine with the old one that had nothing? Can you please help ? Highest gratitude and regards, arnodafe72 🍷😏🔥

The reason it worked with no ABS ring is that the system you have is a magnetic ring on the wheel bearing which influences the ABS sensor magnetically.

If you have a periodic fault then it is working but not all the time.

Suggest a broken sensor or wire. Substitute the sensor and all should be good.

So there's actually nothing on the cv axel that its reading at all - just the wheel bearing - that's crazy - i haven't found anything about that anywhere ....thankyou so much man - i was just about to attempt to put the ring on or put the old cv axel back on to see if the problem went away, even though i couldn't see any difference in them. Do you have a link or part number so i buy the correct magnetic reader sensor ? Appreciated ! Cheers man - thanks again for the reply! Respect ! 🍷😏🚙
 
Read this. I did the research and wrote it up.

Cool ! Just a side note - is it possible on cleaning out the inside of the wheel hub that the magnetic lines on the abs side of the bearing have been damaged or partially removed ? Took out flakes with a flathead screwdriver and sprayed with brake cleaner. ( I don't think so but it is good to ask).😏
 
Unlikely unless you went at it like a mad man!

I expect you damaged the sensor top. Easy to take it out and check.
Sensor bolt is rusted to hell - probably gonna be the hardest part of the swap out - part ordered today and changed my steering tie rod end that was loose - we'll see - hopefully i don't have to change the bearing - ha ! I told rhe other guys where i live about it 'cause even as farners, they've never heard of a magnetic ABS sensor - and specific bearing.....very good to know - gold ! 🍷😏 Have agreat weekend !

Hi again man ! Yeah, hd to drill out the abs bolt but couldn't get the whole thing out s i had tried drilling a smaller hole then using a hardened steel extractment tool se which actually broke off in the bolt making it too hard to drill out later. I place removed the old sensor anyway and set the new one in but with no bolt just to check if the 3 amigos would be fixed - figured i could just use glue to help hold in place. However, the abs tried to reset itself as it should but the 3 amigos came back....the only thing is that i can't get the sensor to go back in all the way - its sits about 1 mm off the place it should be flush with on the wheel hub.i have tried tapping gently on it with a screwdriver on each side of the plastic mount to try to get it flush but won't move. Maybe not being fully in is why its not working ? Also, the old one had some wear on it from either the old wheel axel or possibly just from the new one i put in - should i remove a similar piece from mine (see photos) or is it possible the new sensor is being stopped by the new axel because the axel is wrong ? My axel came with an ABS ring on the outside flush to the rubber cover which i had to remove to get it to fit properly - is there a different axel i should have bought which is particular to the magnetised reading style ? Please let me know what you think, yours greatfully arnodafe72
