    Can the front abs wheel speed sensor be replaced on a 2008 torrent awd?
    stock ac delco replacement hub doesnt come with sensors apparently so I assume it can be but just want to make sure
    • HouseCallAuto

      Yes the sensor can be bought separately, however I would make sure that after removing the retaining bolt that holds the sensor in place, and then make sure that the sensor is not frozen in place, and then you can buy the sensor. If it were me, it is not worth the concern of finding this out after beginning work on the vehicle, and being that the sensor comes already installed in most brands of hub assemblies (ACDELCO is an exception) and the sensor is like $60 while the hub ass'y is like $120, for my money and time, I would buy the hub ass'y with a new sensor. I also believe that in many cases the hub ass'y is the cause of the fault code for the abs sensor to begin with.

      ok thank you. I actually dont have an abs light on but i need the hub assembly replaced...I am having a hard time determining which brands come with the appropriate sensor. Will the timken assembly come with the sensor? What about Centric or one of the more inexpensive brands? Any additional info would be much appreciated. Thanks
    • HouseCallAuto

      yes, the Timken hub seems to come with the sensor , but in one picture I saw you cannot see a wire, however when I clicked add'l info I read this >> Features a pre-sealed, pre-greased and pre-set bearing package design with integrated sensing technology for anti-lock braking systems, total traction control and vehicle dynamics systems.
      Fully serviceable wheel speed sensor (where applicable) is internally mounted and protected from road hazards, debris and potential damage.

      I think they all come with sensors (except ACDELCO)
      2/5/2013 dlockley82
      Ya I read the same thing actually on It is very confusing though because I was looking at an assembly from a cheaper brand on ebay that says it comes with all the sensors but then I emailed them and they said it didn't for my vehicle. The fact that its AWD shouldn't change anything should it? because most sites don't ask me to input that spec about my vehicle when they provide search results. Have you heard anything good about any of the "budget" brands of hub assemblies?
      2/5/2013 HouseCallAuto
      I'm OK with them. Have installed many of those "value" brands and if they were to have failed because of there little known brand '/ quality, I would have had a call back.

    Hub bearing replacement
    I have a bad hub bearing on rt side. How do I replace it? I have separated the hub from the control arm and removed the axel shaft and the three retaining bolts for the bearing and hub assembly, but it won't come out. Thanks
    • Jimm

      This is not a difficult repair, if you have the proper tools, i.e. air compressor, impact gun, a big hammer, and probably a 35mm impact socket. In order to replace the hub and bearing, which is serviced as one unit, you need to first remove the wheel, the brake caliper and mounting brack, the rotor, disconnect the tie rod from the knuckle, remove the lower ball joint nut, separate the lower control arm from the knuckle, remove the axle shaft retaining nut (this is the part where if you don't have an impact gun, 35mm socket, and an air compressor, you will have a very hard time). Next grab your hammer and pound on the end of the axle shaft to get it to come out of the hub. Be careful not to damage the threads on the end of the axle shaft or you won't be able to get the nut started. Sometimes you can spin the nut on a few threads and hit the nut instead of the end of the axle shaft. I've actually had to cut a 1/4" off the end of the threads and start over. There are 3 bolts that hold the hub onto the knuckle. Remove those and disconnect the abs wheel speed sensor connector.

      I got it out. It was corroded in so bad I couldn't tell if the abs sensor was a part of the assembly or not. Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

    Occasionally Console floor shifter will not come out of park without depressing shift lock release on console.
    Also sometimes when this happens and I shut off the ignition the key cannot be removed, and the shift indicator on the instrument panel will flicker or glow even though the engine is off and the shifter is in park. Once I get the transmission in gear it functions ...
