Hi. I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing and maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20 plus years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to installs parts from 1AAuto.com. The right parts installed correctly. That's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video, we'll be showing you how to remove and install the ABS sensor on this 95 Accord. It's the same as any 94 to 97 Accord and the same as a, I think, 97 and 99 Acura CL V6, and same for the 4 cylinders too, just a couple of little differences in the bolts. Tools you need are flat blade screwdriver, various sizes of millimeter sockets with a ratchet and them some wire or string.

Start on this aluminum wheel by removing the center cap. Next, if you don't have the benefit of air tools, you want to loosen your lug nuts while your car is still on the ground and then after you loosen the lug nuts, jack it up and support it. You always want to use a jack and you want to use a jack stand and then remove the lug nuts in the wheel. These are 18 millimeter bolts.

You're going to start by removing all the bracket bolts and there are four of them, one, two, three and four. Those are 10 millimeter and then you're going to remove two 12 millimeter bolts that hold the sensor, which are these two bolts here.

Once you have that off, there's your ABS harness. Now, we're under the hood here, here's the front of the engine, the alternator and everything. Your ABS harness is actually plugged in right up here in, this orange connector and there's a thumb tab around the top. Press that thumb tab and then it comes apart. Before we pull the harness out, what I did is I have put a little piece of wire on here. You can use wire or string or whatever. With a screwdriver, pry this plug up and out. As you're pulling it out, you can see- here comes my string. Now, I can undo this and there's my harness out.

Obviously the reason we put this string through here, when you're ready to reinstall your harness, you just got to guide your clip in there, pulling your wire or your string. As you're feeding the harness up, keep some tension on your wire or your string here and there's the head of your harness, feeding it up in to place, reconnect it and then you pull your wire right off.

Once you've got your clip locked up in place up there, put your four bolts back in, put the sensor in the right spot. Once you have your four bolts in place, put your sensor back into place. We'll tighten up the sensor bolts first. You get good and tight and now we can tighten up all our other bracket bolts. Once everything is tightened up just push your little plug back into place. Got to get one edge started and then stuff the rest of it right in. Now, we can put the wheel back on. Again, I'm just going to use my impact wrench, tighten them up a little bit. Once you have the car down the ground, use a nice big wrench. Generally, lug nuts, you want to tighten up between 75 and 85 foot pounds. I usually just use a breaker bar and get them tight. Take your cap, comes back on and you're all set.
