Default Front wheel speed sensors

Has anyone got any tips for getting these out without breaking them? I have the hubs on the bench so nothing in the way and have been soaking them with fluid. Many thanks

After soaking both sides in penetrating fluid, is there room to try and rotate them around? If they will rotate freely they should be freed up enough to start wiggling out. You may need to use some vice grips for a better hold or lots of light tapping with a nylon/rubber mallet to work them loose.

(I am assuming these are the earlier expensive ones with the round end)

This stuff boggles my mind. I had a hard time getting a sensor on a 2014 recently. Honestly, why does no one put anti-seize on these?

As I removed mine, I had no problems getting them out. I cleaned them up first and then was able to carefully twisted them out.

Are there any identical parts they can be changed with? I’m going to need at least 1

Mine are both cracked under the upper cable curve. So I'vergessen been looking. Bit nothing found yet. I was hoping for a modern style cable-less sensor, which can be replaced by unclipping the sensor and done. Like the X308 has. But I bet have to do some research on that.

Any of you guys have a scope that can gather some specs on your sensors?
