    Ive got a MOT fail on ABS warning lamp
    its normally permanently lit.
    thing is, now and again its off and then comes on 50yds down the road so Im pinning my hopes on the sensor.
    Ive checked the tyre/wheel sizes and theres no differential betweeen them so my next step is to clean the ABS sensors.

    Before I go at them with a hammer and bolster, I thought I'd ask if there is a better way of doing it?

    that means removing the dash, also, as the model is listed with ABS doesnt that mean it has to follow the correct lamp sequence?

    Obviously not the best way to solve the problem but probably only take an hour or two with a screw driver to then get MOT certificate and then fix it properly.. but if you have time on the MOT then no problem.

    not sure what you mean about lamp sequence.

    ABS light follows a preset sequence, tester-man has a book of all sequences for all cars available in the UK.
    Mundano is on for 1.5s. then out.

    only mine doesnt

    but the abs light is permanently on, its not hard to see it
    having the sensors cleaned/checked as we speak, fingers crossed that theyre just caked in crud

    I hear you but if you removed the bulb I mean..
    but then it is obviously better to have it working.
