ABS issues

    Hi all

    I have the following code when scanning with VAG-COM:

    00290 - ABS Wheel Speed Sensor; Rear Left (G46)
    003 - Mechanical Failure - Intermittent

    I have swapped the above sensor but the code has come back. As the code suggests, this is an intermittant issue with the sensor as when running some diagnostics when driving, I can see that sometimes then sensor is in line with the others but sometimes its way out.

    What could this be, if I have swapped it? There doesnt appear to be any problems with the wiring to the sensor.

    In addition, could anyone recommend a good tool kit that is good enough to remove a brake caliper? The ones I have just dont cut it as those bolts are real tight!

    The car is an 04 TDI
