    Ok, so I found that my ABS/Traction light is most likely caused by cracked ABS ring. I went under the car again, rotated the rear tires, and the right rear ring is cracked about 1/8 of an inch, and you can see it.

    So I got the ring from the dealer for $ 25, and I guess I'll be busy this weekend. I know how to get to it since I already replaced the rear bearing, so I know how to get everything off: brakes, knuckle and so on. Once I have the axle hanging from the pumpkin, do I need to pull it out ? Also, how do you slide the new ring on ? And how do you know how far ? I read that someone actualy put the ring in the oven, heated it up so it expanded and then slid it on the axle - not bad idea.

    You will need to clean any rust from the axle and heat the tone ring to install. I have used a small propane torch but a portable hot plate works best
