Front axle ABS sensor replacement....how hard to install?

My ABS light came on in my 06 F250. I had it scanned at advanced auto and they said its the passengerside wheel sensor is bad. Anyone replace one yet to see how hard they are to do?

Just stick your head in the wheel well and take a look. Allen head on the hub, one on the knuckle, and maybe 2 other bolts that hold the wire from getting caught in stuff. Easy beans.

it looks to me like its behind the rotor....Are the rotors easy to change or do you have to pull the hub off also?

Yea, you'll have to pull off the wheel, caliber, and rotor assemblies. There's a 6mm hex head that connects it to the hub, 8mm bolt that holds it in place behind the dust shield, then there's a plastic clip on the frame that you can use a flat head screwdriver to undo. Also use a flat head screwdriver to disconnect from the main harness. Probably a 30 min job, ez stuff
