N/S Front Hub/Bearing/ABS Replacement?

Hey,

Does anyone know how to replace the n/s font hub?

My ABS light is on permanently and have been told to replace the ABS ring (which i found is inside the wheel bearing)

I have also been told it is easier to replace the whole wheel Hub unit that replace the individual parts so have bought a second hand one.

I'm not 100% sure on the removal and re fitting are there any links to step by step guides or does anyone have any advice?

Appreciate any help

Ed

I've just done the backs which were a doddle, so I'd imagine the fronts to be equally straightforward.

Wheel off, caliper off, brake disk off and four bolts secure the hub.

Ideally if your not sure how to go about it, best leave it to someone who does or can come and give you a hand that knows, its a critical item and needs to be done correctly, and you should use new fixings and torque everything up on assembly.

I'm not familiar the Mini setup but having replaced reluctor rings on other vehicles you'll usually need to remove the driveshaft from the hub assembly, a ball joint or two from the control arms, calipers/discs, etc.

You usually buy the rings separately, chisel/drift the old one off, clean the surfaces, heat up the new one and press on.
