MASTER TECH :

MASTER TECH :

MASTER TECH :

Customer:

How diffcult is this to replace? I agree I think I got an very inexpereinced tech last Friday. I have been using this dealership for 10 years. As along time customer I think I have some things they need to correct in their diagonsstic process for me.

MASTER TECH :

this is very easy let me load this info

Customer:

Great

MASTER TECH :

please CLICK HERE for vss info. once you have the speed sensor housing hanging then you will see the 3 small torx screws remove these and the electrical part will come out and reverse install. it really is easy to do.
