WANTED: near side headlamp and ABS sensor

Post by Brian King »

Hello,

I'm after two spare parts for my cars:

1. A near side headlamp for a 1991 TZD

and

2. An ABS sensor for a 1990 16v

Does anyone have these they are willing to sell?

Many thanks,
Brian

Hi, I have a few pairs of bx headlights, not sure if they vary by model of BX though, I can go about getting some pictures tomorrow if you're interested.

You will find that ABS sensors are like gold dust and almost impossible to find. When mine have failed I have usually found that the coax lead has failed internally in the area where they flex a lot. It is a simple job to splice in some screened cable to bypass the the failure.

The correct resistance should be about 1000 ohms - so that is the aim to get a correct reading after fault finding and repair.

Are front and rears the same. Certainly the fronts are easier to remove!
