Please tell me how you managed to get the rear ABS sensors along with the handbrake cable out? I am having a nightmare with mine. It's almost as if they are welded to the hub. The Bolt has sheered hold the ABS sensor in however I still can't free it even with a chisel! Cheers

Don't take out the abs sensors out as they snap and are very pricey but if you must soak with penetrating oil for a week. hand brake has small c clips, again soak and pull been there and swore alot

Unfortunately if there that bad ( as mine were ) there is no way of getting them out without having to replace them I tried soaking mine for days in release lube ( plus gas ) but it made no difference.
If you have acces take a hammer and punch to the sensor tip that goes to the ring on the drive shaft and knock the centre magnetic core out.
Once that's free pull all the copper coil out and get a hack saw blade in and cut from the inside out at 12 o'clock 3,6 and 9 then the sensor case will fall out.
As for the broken bolt it's just a case of drilling and tapping it out and fitting a new bolt.
If you need any more info just ask

To be fair..most abs sensors have been in getting hot and cold for about 17+ years now.

And we all complain when they dont come out mint!!....me included.

Yeah they ain't cheep I only had one come out and that was only because I replaced it about four years ago myself.
Ross sport sell them for £115 each for the fronts and £95 for the rears so if it ain't broke don't fix it unless you really need it out for other reasons.
As for the handbrake cables as Arron says there's a small clip that holds the cable into the backing plate.

Thanks, I will have a crack at it again this afternoon. I have just disconnected the cable for the ABS sensor further along. It looks like someone has done the same thing at some stage to it. I noticed that the cable has been cut and taped up at some stage too. I think the previous owners bodged the car up as best as possible spending as little money as they could. Unfortunately, I am now picking up the pieces and the cost. I don't think this car has had a genuine MOT for many years.

I'll have a look through my photos and see if I can find one that shows where it is but it's in the back of the backing plate in a small part of hard tube and all you can really see is a small slit so it maybe that it's covered in mud or rust.
I'll see what I can find

Where are you getting your Ball joints from mate? I can't seem to find any online for under £45-£50 a piece for the rear suspension arm ball joints.
