Rear ABS mount corroded

Postby ABliss » Sat Jan 06, 2018 4:09 pm

OK, so I've read a few posts on this as its quite a common problem. ABS sensor has come off its mount. I need a fix so it'll pass its MOT. What have people done to fix it on? I was just going to araldite (epoxy) it on for the MOT next week and will have the rest of the year to address the issue better.
I don't have the time nor the means to get another axle onto it.

So I got some quick steel as it was the only thing my local autosave had. This position look OK to you guys?

For anyone interested in this fix...

I used Quick steel (only thing they had at my local Autosave) which is a putty that hardens like steel. And it worked!! ABS light has gone off...

Well done
Haven't had this problem yet but read posts on it.
Will be good if you or one of us can come up with a more permanent fix in the summer.

To be honest, I think this is the least of my problems. I noticed that the caliper was still binding to the disc when I had the handbrake off (I was still able to turn the disc though, was only some friction). Not entirely sure if this is an MOT failure, as it's only been 'little or no effort when handbrake applied'. Also, it's proper rusty in there. The tester will most likely inspect further and see my botch job. :cool:
