Hi. You need to remove the caliper and the rotor. To get the rest of the sensor out, you are going to have to break away the rest of the sensor with something like a chisel and hammer to get the rest of it out. Or a drill bit to break it up. THen you are going to want to try to pull out the pieces with pliers so they dont go into the wheel bearing. Otherwise the wheel bearing will have to be replaced.
