I don't have the part number for the ABS sensor, but the xtrail one looks like this:



It's not the speed sensor through, it is ABS.

x trail abs sensor

Hi Pad the man
I have good news if your still looking for a cheaper alternative to the Nissan abs unit.
I too had the same problem as you and was horrified at the cost of a genuine replacement, I did some research on the net and came up with a potential replacement from e bay, its from a citreon zx. Mine was only a tenner, so it was worth a try.
It will need a slight file to reduce the outside diameter, and the mounting hole is 180 degrees out of line, I simply made a retaining bracket out of 16 guage steel and used the original bolt to locate it. I cut the wiring just above the first strut retaining clip, and soldered the two together, the coding is brown to brown and black to white..... job done!
Hope this helps
Regards Marty

abs sensor for x trail

Hi Marty,

was just wondering if there is any requirements as to which type of citroen zx we are talking about, as I have the same problem here in denmark and would like to try your solution. One more question for you - as the sensor is broken, the abs warning light is on - but also 4x4 warning light is this normal or should I look for another problem also. Finn

x trail abs sensor

Hi Finn
Ive had a look at my e bay account to see if any more details were available, it was just listed as being for a Citreon ZX, OEM Part Number: 454547
There is one on e bay for a realistic £25
CITROEN ZX FRONT ABS SENSOR on eBay (end time 25-Aug-09 16:57:33 BST)
Dont worry about the 4x4 light being on as mine was exactly the same, it will go out once the new sensor is fitted.
Any more questions please feel free to get in touch
Regards


Marty

Thats great news, and thanks for the update, its always nice to know the outcome of problems when you offer advice. Now there are three of us with our Citroen ABS sensors, but would imagine there will be a few more in the future!

I'd love to make it 4! Mine is the front nearside (passenger) ABS sensor. I'd love to try the Citroen sensor. Does anyone happen to know if it makes any difference which side of the X-trail the faulty unit is on?

Well done and many thanks to Marty for making this kind of stuff available to others.

Mike

Abs Sensor

Go for it Mike, mine was the nearside too. The e bay listing for ther Citroen sender stated it was suitable for either side, so I would imagine it doesnt make any difference to us either.

abs sensor locating bolt

Assuming you can get the little bugger out without shearing it off! I believe it is an M6, I had to drill and tap mine out as it simply wouldnt shift due to rust. I replaced it with a stainless steel cap screw one, with plenty of copperslip.
