Does anyone know wether the front abs sensors are handed?
Are they left and right or can you use them on any side?
Thanks.

They are handed. It is possible to fit on the wrong side but you have to make/modify mountings.

The plugs are different left/right from memory?

Yes they are, but you can cut the 'key' off and then they'll plug in either side..
I know all this as I did it a couple of years ago. When the sensor goes in to the hub it has to be rotated to align properly with the abs ring on the driveshaft. This means the bolt hole doesn't line up so have to make up a bracket to keep it in place. Once it's all in it works fine. Smile

Yes, if you look at the actual pickup head it's rectangular and that has to be the right way round relative to the abs ring or you won't get much signal. Mine didn't work at all till I turned it.
Will try and find a picture tomorrow.

Good to know, never even thought to look obviously that's why the plugs are different for each side.
