    You've done something wrong mate :p

    People often knock a sensor, or don't clip the wires in and they get stuck between the wheel and strut and get ripped off.
    Also, how's you're tracking? Of
    It's MILES out then that cam trigger abs light too

    Had my Coil Overs fitted a week ago and on Thursday i got the dash ABS light come on, read code and it pointed to front left side wheel sensor, posted on here for help and got reply from sandip as follows:

    "Remove the wheel, behind the disc there's a sensor which reads wheel speed off pulse/magnetism, check the connection is ok first, it's more than likely that there's some dirt between the sensor and the abs ring (metal bit with holes in it), spray some brake cleaner inbetween the sensor and abs ring to clean the face of the sensor

    Clear the faults go for a drive and see if it comes back on, if it does then it could be the sensor that needs replacing".

    Not looked at this yet, as im dealing with another issue, dont you just love these cars!! Hope this helps.
