ABS kicking in every minute or so-need help please

:roll: you know what! I was thought about using a feeler gauge just seconds after posting this and also I thought I will remove the sensors and rub the bit the fit into, to get any rust/dirt and see what happens. If this doesn’t resolve then I think it’s time to give up as it’s coming on for a year ...

Hi again, really sorry to be a pain, i know i'm a complete amateur but I'll have a go at anything. Just thinking back to my first reposonse to this post.

Thank you for that suggestion Wild E. Coyote, ive had a look at FORscan and downloaded the app but i think my OBDii reader is too basic, it simply plugs into the OBD socket on the car, nothing else on it unfortunately, so i'll need to check the rings the old fashioned way. thanks anyway, useful app ...
