    Had a good old rake about with the wiring on the car and I cant find any obvious reason the abs sensor is spazzing out. I've removed the arch liners to make it easier to access the connectors. Whilst it may not be very practical I'm quite taken with the #becauseracecar look (even if it isnt)

    Ate sensor or OEM I believe are the best, how much crud is on the back of the bearing, or is the back of it damaged in any way?

    I quite like the wheel view, but the mess in the bay I don't need.

    Theres nothing on the back of the bearing, I made sure I cleaned it all off. I'm a bit reluctant to spunk 60 on a sensor if it's potentially something else. I might try jerry rigging a jumper wire to the other side of the car to see if the problem shifts. At least that would rule out the harness

    I've never had a problem with these..https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Front-ABS...72.m2749.l2649
    What does the OBS2 tell you about the light?

    I don't have obd as I'm on a standalone ecu. My logs for the other 3 wheels look normal but the front left is looking like its maxed out. I'm thinking it may be an R56 sensor. They apparently have the same plugs but the signal is incompatible

    Knocked up a test cable and jumped the left hand sensor to the right harness and vice versa. Luckily the harness on the car is fine and it's just the sensor. I've reserved an ATE one from euro's which wasn't cripplingly expensive after the usual discount bollocks. I'll get that fitted tomorrow morning

    Fitted the new sensor, problem fixed
    The new sensor looks nothing like the one I was trying to fit. So much for free bits lol

    Well my sensor warning lights are back again. Scanned the ABS module and came back with the following (that I can't delete)
    What do you reckon, dodgy wheel bearing ring. It's clear of debris n stuff, and the bearing itself has been on about five years
