Re: laguna 2 Abs fault
The Laguna ABS sensors aren't that type, they are held in position by a clip ring that is fitted into the hub before the wheel bearing is fitted.
See the picture of the hub below.
The silver ring in your picture is an old broken CV boot clip, nothing to do with the ABS.
If you look at the picture of the hub you posted you can see grease that has been splattered onto the track rod end, this will have come from the CV joint when the clip broke. A new clip is in place now...the one with the square holes in it.
If the old ring was flicking around for a while it could have damaged the sensor...but it's a bit of a coincidence that the ABS problems have only started since the spring broke and the car went to the garage.
Try pressing the sensor in at the bottom a bit, so it's parallel with the hub. It looks like the wire is a bit tight and could have pulled the sensor out a bit.
Check the sensor is clean and not covered in grease.
After doing anything you will have to drive the car up to 15-20mph to let the ABS system reset.
Close up picture of the hub for reference.
To remove the sensor lift the clip in the centre and pull the sensor away.
