Today i took the wheel off to replace said sensor, only to find out that the "Clip" or "Housing" that the sensor sits in has completely eroded.

I don't know what to do, do i need a whole new hub or is there any easier way to fix this?

I'm now at the stage where im considering part exchanging the car and getting a newer, none french car...

can any one in the know help me out here? is this going to be a costly fix?
Forgot to add that it's a MK2 megane 53 plate.
Currently in MoJoe's garage:
2003 Renault megane 1.5 dCi
