Hi all I am the proud owner of 307 D turbo 2002 model and got a problem with an intermittent ABS fault. Peugeot dealers keep resetting it with no fault logged, a Peugeot Citreon mechanic found a fault logged on the OSR wheel. For information the problem occurs now every time you drive the car where before it was probably once a week?

First of all I have read the threads in the forum on this subject and I am first going to attempt to remove the build up of rust under the sensor etc. I have noticed that looking down between the brake disc and the protection shield the sensor seems to be on an angle is this correct?

I will also check the wiring for damage and corrosion,  I am no mechanic and therefore will have to buy the tools to do the job what size are the Torx head bolts to remove the rear brake disc? Any ideas?

What should be the gap be between the sensor ?

Also any other advise is welcomed.

thanks in advance

 Keith.

Mustang,

Welcome to the forum.

To start with you need a good manual to guide you through the various procedures. Try Haynes Peugeot 307 Service and Repair Manual (Book No. 4147).

There is no air gap quoted for the wheel speed sensors, they are just bolted into position. It is possible that they may be out of alignment, but check this very carefully when you remove the rear sensor.

As for tools needed, all I can advise is that you need a fairly comprehensive tool kit to do this job. Are you sure you are up to it?

Chuck

Also any other advise is welcomed.

My advice is to use the Search facility on the Forum, there's 'shedloads' on 307 ABS, including a little bit from me !

I stand, to be corrected.

I have a Haynes manual and some tools I just need the correct sized Torx head I measured across from point to point when I had the wheel off. I didn't realise you need to measure across the short bit. See you learn something every day (What a pillock) Smile

It's probably one of these T50, T55,T60,T70 but at a tenner each (for a socket) I didn't want to buy all of them I might as well take it into Peugeot at that cost!

 I will have to buy a set, I suppose knowing the 307 they will come in handy anyway?

I'm up for it alright it's not difficult remove the rear wheel, take the rear brake pads out, remove the brake caliper, remove the brake disc then undo the bolt that holds the sensor in place, remove clean up the rust etc. Fit a washer if deemed neccesary. Check the wiring under the exhaust heat shield while I'm down there. Put it all back together. God it sounds easy BUT I bet I will be chuffing trying to get the disc off.

Do I need a puller?

Any comments have I missed anything ?

Keith,

         did you read and act on my post? You seem to be making the 'classical' mistake. From what I've read about 307 ABS in 'the archive' on this forum, it is unlikely to be the sensor at fault. STOP and read the old posts first.

I stand, to be corrected.

If you buy a torx bit set (not expensive) you will have all the tools to do the job. It is exactly as you described, so stop talking about it and dive inw00t

Aim for a gap of about 1mm, which you can acheive with a bit of packing in the right place. You shouldn't need a puller.

Hello again,

Finally fixed the ABS problem, it was the Rear o/s sensor rust had pushed the sensor away from the hub. Cleaned or chipped the rust away treated with an known brand chemical to try to slow down the rust building back up inserted a washer to pack the sensor out and left a gap of 0.05mm. Only second day so keep your fingers crossed. Oh by the way it was a T50 Torx head bit.

Thanks to everyone for the info.
