    ABS cutting in

    Hi,

    my ABS seems to cut in under gentle or firm braking - but get this - ONLY when turning left (however gently)!
    The classic scenario is pulling up at a roundabout, or a T-junction to turn left. The pedal will 'pump' what feels like once a wheel revolution or so - not a constant grumble which you might get under total lock up. Braking in a straight line - even hard - the pedal is firm and feels normal.

    Any ideas what could be causing this? I can't work out how to remove the sensors to clean them...

    Cheers.

    Cheers, but it's definitely the ABS. With the ABS unit disconnected it doesn't happen. Top suspect at the moment is a cracked reluctor ring. I've had this before with similar symptoms (different car) - although it did it all the time coming to the end of a stop, not just turning left.
