Unhappy Need help replacing vechile speed sensor! Location? HELP!

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport 2 Dr Wagon Sport Utility with a 4.0L V6 FI SOHC. It is 4WD.

I picked up a speed sensor, though I can't seem to find where to install it anywhere. Any pictures/diagrams or advice is so appriciated.

On the rear differential is only the ABS sensor, and I can't seem to find the same sensor near the front. I can't seem to find it anywhere on the transmission...do I need to remove something?

The sensor looks like this:



I purchased it from FORD...is it possible they gave me the wrong sensor?

Where do I install this? Help please...

Yup- your speed sensor is also your abs sensor on your rear differential. You've got the wrong part.

it is on the rear differential.
It is on top and is surprisingly easy to get to.
I have done it on my 2000 sport ( same truck as yours ) It is right on top of the diffy' and the only thing on there with a wire coming out of it.

If you've got a 98+ you don't, that is the wrong part. If you have an earlier year it is in the transmission or t-case if you have 4x4.
