  1. Had it all apart doing wheel bearings , and cleaned everything, there was a lot of like iron filings on both sensors when I cleaned them , but I will check resistance thanks
  2. There was abit of a prob with osf brake or when coming to a stop it felt like calliper was releasing and rebraking, but no lights so I’m thinking the sensor is faulty any way , because while lights are on and normal brakes working it dosnt do it

  5. Cheers herbie , so fluid to be on hot marks when warm
  6. Hi guys I was checking fluids after a 50mile trip , with engine idling and found the gearbox fluid to be sitting half way between cold and hot marks , I let it cool down over nite and the level now it’s cold is above the hot marks , I take it when hot fluid should be on or near the hot marks but is it right that when cold it’s right over the hot marks🤭🤔
  7. OK thanks guys , the car has 137000 on it , I've had two new tyres on back , but need to get tracking done due to all the front end suspension work done recently, would doing the wheel bearings upset the tracking if I get it done first
