12 A S P D e c e m b e r 2 018 C o m p a n i e s H e l p i n g T e c h s Installation guidelines Prior to removal of the old hub assembly, be sure the ABS wheel speed sensor is removed (fig. 1). Sometimes it is helpful to use rust penetrant in and around the ABS wheel speed sensor to aid in removal. If the ABS wheel speed sensor is not removed, damage can occur to this sensor during removal of the old hub assembly or dur- ing installation of the new hub assembly. e ABS wheel speed sen- sor head sits in-between the protective cover and the ABS encoder ring built into the seal on the back of the hub assem- bly (fig. 2). Damage can also occur to the metal protective cap on the new hub assembly if the ABS sensor is not removed. Also, be sure that the old protective cap is not still stuck in the knuckle aer removing the old hub assembly. At times, the protective cap becomes dislodged from the hub assem- bly during removal. If it's le in place, damage will occur to the ABS sensor and new hub assembly (fig. 3).
