    Ive got a problem with one of my abs speed sensors and i dont know which one. I have a small hand held diagnostic tool and it dosent show any problens even when its had all the lights on the dashboard. Im wondering if my mates vcd (the fancy laptop if i had the wrong name) would tell me which ones faulty or would i have to get it showing the speed from the sensors

    That is the tool i was thinking of. So he should be able to scan and tell me which one needs changing

    Rears do require pushing in and turning

    The wing back Tool kit is super helpful I use it ofwr but if you're only ever doing the one then you can improvise or buy a cheap wind back socket adapter
