Thanks Paul

Paul- access to my eBay account (Purchase History) "blocked" on my government network so I cannot confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt the part numbers used. I believe the sensors used are for 2002-2006 Audi A4. And again I had to fabricate a spacer to raise them out of the sensor bore just a little bit to clear the teeth on the sensor wheel. It's listed here (for example) https://picclick.com/Left-Right-Rear...629415407.html for $15

Bob, thanks for the info. I wonder if there is a generic crank position sensor available at a cheaper price since it is almost the same thing.

Thatís the bearings done. Only problem now is that ABS light is on because I damaged sensor whilst removing it. Now speedometer has stopped working too. Is this because of the damaged ABS sensor?

The sensor I used on the rear of my 97, $39.98 ea. Insert it into the sensor bore until it rests on the reluctor wheel. Measure the gap to the sensor flange and hub; add .030 to that measurement; that is the thickness your spacer needs to be. Visually check gap inside hub with flash light to make sure your sensor is close without touching ABS wheel.

Hi Stu,

Yes, the rear driver's side ABS wheel speed sensor provides the road speed signal for the speedometer. Your speedo should resume operation when you replace that broken sensor.

To find the sensor connector, follow its wiring harness.

Cheers,

Don

Fitted the Audi ABS sensor, not straight forward had to cut plug off and use original Jag plug, also space out the sensor to clear toothed ring. Speedometer is working again but still got ABS light on. Going for a longer test drive to see if it goes out.

Itís official A4 ABS sensor works on 1994 Xj6, you just have to swap plugs and space the sensor out a bit so it doesnít catch speed ring in hub. Also found out Mitch must have made rear seat.🤔

Mitch was the best in the business. Sadly he had to retire early when the glamorous lifestyle caught up to him and he started partying at the clubs in Coventry. He got hooked on the spray foam fumes and never recovered....

again, sorry for intruding on the thread, but i thought my update could be useful information for others looking into this thread.

ordered a new hub, took it to the garage, but after a few minutes they called me and said they didn't want to fit it as it was obvious that u joints were the problem. so.. 4 of those ordered and a new appointment set up next week. fingers crossed..
