Re: 145 abs problem
Nope, you should not have to. The sensors are what are known as 'phonic sensors', reading the teeth ground into the wheel hub on rotation.
They will simply start passing the correct signals to the ABS control unit.
A word of warning though... I found the sensors IMPOSSIBLE to remove with a standard allen key... needed much more leverage than that.
Don't be afraid to use an angle grinder to remove the allen heads of the old one, remove the sensor, and then weld a nut to the top of the remainig stem.
Let us know how it goes.
