corsa b, T reg 1.6 sport..

i changed the rear drums on the car about 4 months ago, now i got abs drums but these came without the rings which pick up the abs sensor. Well took rings off old drums and put them onto new ones.

All fitted back together fine no problem. month or so after these being on abs light came on and car was locking up, at the back, the car is lowered about 70mm so i adjusted the brake bias thinking this could be causing the locking up.

however this didnt solve anything. i had a diagnotics guy come to house plug in his computer and all abs sensors are fine. He thinks its the gap between the sensor and the rings which i put on the new drums. So wheels off adjusted gap and made it closer to the abs sensor.

I am left now with the brake pedding twitching and knocking as if the abs is kicking in. as soon as i go over 30mph this dissapears and brakes fine. if im doing under 30mph for a while the abs light comes on.

does anyone know the correct distance the rings shud be on the drum? or anywhere where i can buy new drums with the ring fitted at the correct gap to fix this problem.

cheers

had exactly the same problem mate...
its hard as hell to get the abs rings back on properly, i just bought new rear drums off autovaux with abs rings buitl onto them (new type), think they were about 65 with the rings, which is alot of money but my brakes are fine now, and no light comes on

I didnt think ABS was an option on a T reg corsa?

Parkers guide:
Brakes Cost From To
ABS 300 Oct 1999 Dec 2000

Think October 1999 is V reg?

My T reg sport doesnt have ABS.

No they weren't.

Mine doesn't have it, and tbh I don't know many Sports that do - it seems it was much more common on the GSI than the Sport.
