Re: ABS ring loose
Hope this might help, it is for a Merc A class which my partner has and what I had do do to replace the reluctor (ABS) ring, in particular you may find the Loctite of use.
Loctite 638 3ml
Procedure (See break down of parts above )
Loosen drive shaft nut + wheel bolts
Jack up car, remove wheel, remove brake pads, & calliper and secure out of way, remove brake disk.
Split track rod ball joint and move out of the way
Remove both bolts from lower end of suspension strut. These must be replaced in precisely the same position when replaced so make position before removal.
Use hub puller to remove hub from drive shaft if needed (just pushed mine out by hand)
Now clean up the driveshaft where ring should go, check fit of ring, mine was a snug fit.
coat contact surfaces with Loctite,
Fit ring, leave to cure for ten mins.
Refit all parts.
Take for a test drive
Reset ABS light if required. Fitting the new sender ring should delete the light, turn the steering wheel fully left. Fully right this is best done while driving/moving the car slowly.
