Hello everybody. I've been looking for hour without swuccess to find the location of the front ABS sensor on my 03 EB Explorer. I'm guessing it's the wire running to the hub? Is this a changeable part? I just had the front hubs replaced so this is a bit annoying, basically every bearing in my explorer has disintegrated in the last month. The ABS and Traction Control lights just started coming on randomly and often with the "Check ADVTRAC" message so I took it over to my mechanic and his code reader said front right abs sensor. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thank you, I figured as much but wanted to check. I took the wheel off to look around, I guess you have to flip the brake caliper up to get at it?

Yep, tie it up out of the way and you'll see the sensor. Just takes an allen head bolt and it should slip out (be careful of the o-ring). Might have to give it a little wiggle on the way out. It'll either slide out easily, or you'll break it.
