I started my day today in the Garage as normal (George's West End Garage), not so cold today so at least I could feel my finger ends for a change. First job today was an MOT failure due to an ABS warning light, plugged my computer in and it showed 1 fault on a speed wheel sensor, drivers side rear and Yes that could well be the problem. If only life was so simple. Let me explain one little thing, these sensors as fitted directly behind the wheel hub,
this is where the problems start, first thing i guess everyone will know due to the location of these type of parts is they are subject to all the rain, snow, ice, salt, muck and dirt of every days roads here in the UK, ohh and the image above is how they should look. So the first thing i did was remove the wheel, moved onto simply remove the securing bolt of the ABS sensor (speed wheel sensor)
but of course no it wont come out because the corrosion and rust has eaten half the bolt head away.
Ok well after another 20 minutes cleaning, lubricating, special sockets and all i eventually got the bolt out. Next of course again, instead of the little sensor simply pulling out of its seat it wont move, no not a chance, the thing has no intention of coming out and just wants to sit there in all the rust and corrosion built up around it. The bottom line here is what started out as a 30 minute job ended up taking nearly 1.5 hours, this included additional work of brakes removal, disk and hub removal just to get t the seized parts. however as you can see so much time wasted on what should be a simple repair.
Well folks, today was a bit of a pain, and all mainly due to Rust and corrosion and this is so regular in my sort of work and can increase the work times so much. Ohh well job done and everybody happy. MOT test pass and all in order. Tomorrow is another day, I wonder if it will be freezing, rainy , or a lovely mild day, I wont hold my breath on the latter.

Life as a car mechanic can be a handful for one. Working for a living is very hard for a mechanic. We need mechanics for our cars to function, but we do not really appreciate them. We should value these guys because their work is the reason why our lives are simply better. Imagine having a life without a working car. It would be insanely hard to have no car to use. We should start being nice to them and appreciate their hard work.
