Die probleem is as daar roes of olie op die rotors is verloor die speedsensor die sein op baie lae spoed wat die ABS laat dink die wiel staa...

Haal die agterste speed sensors uit en kyk of hulle nie dalk vol olie is nie . As die agterste side shaft seels lek kan dit veroorsaak dat die sensors hulle lesings verloor op lae spoed. As die sensor vuil is maak hulle skoon en kyk wat maak hy.
