did you damage the sensor when you tried to remove?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that's what I do not know???? I did not want to take out the sensor because I thought it was stuck too badly in there ,,,so now maybe it is damaged from removing the bearing,,,,that is probably what your thinking right?
is there a test I can do on the sensor without removing it and really buggering it up???

A good wheel speed sensor will generally produce an alternating current (AC) voltage reading of 50 to 700 MV when the wheel is spun by hand at about one revolution per second.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will try that and get back to you ok
Expert:  JOHN aka Eauto replied 1 year ago.

a good wheel speed sensor and circuit will typically have a resistance of 800 to 1400 ohms

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
800 to 1400 when motionless and 50 to 700 mv when in motion right?
Expert:  JOHN aka Eauto replied 1 year ago.

50 to 70 mv when moving ,, resistance is measured not moving..
