    Front Hub Assembly With ABS Sensor

    • 1). Loosen the lug nuts on the wheel with the failed ABS sensor, using a ratchet and socket. Raise the front of the Camaro, using a floor jack, and slide jack stands under the frame rails. Lower the Camaro onto the jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and pull the front wheel from the Camaro.

    • 2). Remove the two caliper bolts on the rear of the caliper, using a ratchet and socket. Pull the caliper from the rotor. Hang the caliper from a nearby suspension component, using a bungee strap.

    • 3). Grab the rotor and pull it from the hub. Lightly tap the rotor with a rubber mallet, if it does not pull off easily.

    • 4). Pull up on the ABS wiring harness locking tab, and pull the wiring harness from the rear of the hub assembly.

    • 5). Remove the four bolts holding the hub to the steering knuckle, using a ratchet and socket, and pull the hub assembly from the Camaro.

    • 6). Set the new hub assembly with ABS sensor on the steering knuckle and hand-tighten its four bolts. Torque the four hub assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts to 63 foot-pounds with a torque wrench and socket. Plug the wiring harness into the ABS sensor receptacle on the new hub assembly.

    • 7). Set the brake rotor and caliper back in place and tighten the caliper bolts to 38 foot-pounds with a torque wrench and socket.

    • 8). Reinstall the front wheel and hand-tighten the lug nuts. Raise the Camaro off the jack stands with a floor jack. Remove the jack stands and lower the Camaro to the ground. Tighten its lug nuts, in a crisscross pattern, to 100 foot-pounds with a torque wrench and socket.

    Rear ABS Sensor

    • 1). Loosen the lug nuts on the wheel with the failed ABS sensor, using a ratchet and socket. Raise the rear of the Camaro, using a floor jack, and slide jack stands under the rear axle. Lower the Camaro onto the jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and pull the wheel from the Camaro.

    • 2). Pull up on the locking tab on the ABS wiring harness and disconnect the harness from the ABS sensor -- located on the brake backing plate.

    • 3). Remove the bolt holding the rear ABS sensor to the backing plate, and pull the sensor from the Camaro.

    • 4). Insert the new ABS sensor and tighten the retaining bolt to 7 to 8 foot-pounds, using a torque wrench and socket. Plug the wiring harness into the new ABS sensor.

    • 5). Place the rear wheel back on the Camaro and hand-tighten its lug nuts. Raise the Camaro from the jack stands, using a floor jack, and remove the jack stands. Lower the vehicle to the ground. Torque the lug nuts to 100 foot-pounds, in a crisscross pattern, using a torque wrench and socket.
