Title: ABS sensor disconnection
Post by: Dexter7176 on April 24, 2015, 12:55:26 PM
Hi, I am having trouble disconnecting the sensor, I want to check the connections. Is there a small catch or any thing that I have to press. My eyes are bad and my head is to big to get close enough to get a look!

 [W4] Hello!

Is it a front or rear sensor you're trying to disconnect? The connectors can be a bit tricky to disconnect especially when they get a bit of dirt/ dust in them, and the sensor connectors in the wheelarches are exposed to the elements. It isn't the same connector but the technique for removal is the same- take a look here. (https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy/ford-galaxy-wiper-motor-removal-of-electrical-connector/msg9444/#msg9444) Basically you need to lever the little tab (as long as it hasn't been butchered previously) on the multiplug with a small flat screwdriver to release the locking tang, after which the connector can be pulled apart.
