blue_van - Replacing Front Wheel Hubs with Bearings and ABS Sensors
We were getting and intermittent ABS light on the dash, along with a warning message to service the traction control and stabilitrack system. One possible cause for this is failing or extremely dirty ABS sensors. To replace the ABS sensors you have to take the hub off, and since I already knew I needed new bearings up front, I decided to simply replace the hub. This is because the bearing is not individually replaceable. You replace the hub which includes the bearing. The hub also includes a new ABS sensor and tone ring. So I opted to replace both hubs up front.
The work was actually pretty easy. Unfortunately I continue to get intermittent ABS lights on the dash. So it may be the rear ABS sensors that are bad, or it might be something else entirely. At least my front wheel bearings are no longer squeking.
