I just tried to follow a guide off FSC forums to remove/clean the front wheel abs sensors but I'm stuck on step 2!

 

The guide says to remove the caliper/rotor, then unbolt 2 of the hub bolts which are holding on a dust shield over the abs sensor. The guide writer has a `97 k1500, mine's a `96 k1500...and they're obviously different :(

 

I broke those bolts loose and backed them out until the heads hit the hub and I cannot get them out or remove the dust shield which is blocking access to unbolt the abs sensor on the drivers side.

 

 

 

The issue I'm trying to resolve is ABS light is on solid, I had it scanned a couple of years ago before the engine/trans went out and I remember them finding a drivers side wheel sensor code. I've read lots of others have issues with crud built up on the sensor that causes ABS problems which they can resolve by removing/wire wheeling to get the crud off/re-assembling with some grease to help seal it a bit.

 

At this point it looks like I need to remove the hub to gain access to remove this sensor...new hubs are sold with new sensors and new wheel bearings, so it's my idea at this point to just replace the hub?

I have an 04 Yukon & things may be different & I dont honestly know how much it differs from your rig

 

but I dont have to remove the dust shield to access the ABS sensor, on mine you would have to pull the CV axle nut, the sealed bearing in order just to remove/replace the dust shield which has no effect on the ABS sensor

 

I thought I had a photo showing where it is but I dont here is the closest I have on my rig its on the back side above the CV axle & located on the spindle, the wire will lead you to it
