Re: Abs fault

Yes ABS light because it can't read the NSF speed sensor (toothed ring and electro-magnetic pick-up).

On the old Ford I had what tended to happen if a bearing failed was the toothed ring was allowed to move laterally and bash the sensor, either denting or shifting it, so when the bearing was fixed (and hub restored to correct position), the gap between ring and sensor is now too large. Or, sensor is damaged, but if you only noticed it after fixing the bearing one has to assume it was working up 'til then.

Re brakes, can only imagine there's still air in the pipes.

EDIT: you don't say whether ABS light comes on straightaway or after driving for a bit, if the former, sensor is open circuit (unplugged, dodgy connections or kaput); if the latter, it's not making a signal (gap too large, metal filings stuck to sensor).
