Hi, Have just purchased 2010 1.6 Automatic. Lovely solid car. Very well made. I also have a newer Mercedes C220 AMG which is a
piece of junk, but that is another story...
It seems to be impossible to find a rear ABS sensor for the RCZ, harder to find than the Golden Fleece.
Part no. is 9674196180
The only Peugeot/Citroen part no. to come close is 3008 which is 9674195780.
I was wondering if I could use the 3008 part instead, or maybe there is another Peugeot/Citroen model Rear ABS sensor that is the same?
Next problem is how to fit it
I have taken wheel off to discover that the bolt fixing sensor to hub is blocked by the brake disc. There is a small clearance but
the allen key is too big to fit in....any ideas?
Is there a special tool or do you have to take the brake disc off??
Any help would be appreciated. I stay in Kilmarnock, if there are any RCZ specialists nearby.
Love the styling & dynamics of the car, and yes it could do with more power.
All the best
A

Buycarparts.co.uk used to sell the Bosch "hall sensor" listed for the RCZ order no 0 2765007790 I cannot recall if they do front & rear & I think you will need to remove the disc to get the sensor off

Hi, thanks for help. I will check it out. Seems to be front sensor. I had feeling disc would need to come off.
The manufacturers really want to rip people off. There should be a government investigation of them along
the lines of the financial investigations.
The manufacturers need to make a profit but they are over the top & criminal in the amount they charge...I think VW diesel gate was the tip of the
iceberg...the manufacturers are true criminal fraudsters.
I suspect faults are built into ECUs etc that happen at certain times, mileages
No one in their right mind would ever buy a self driving car.....they cant (or wont) even get the basics to work!!!!
Our government really needs to look at them closely.....& do something!!!!!!
Rant over....Thanks for your help.
I will keep looking for the rarest abs sensor in the world...maybe I will frame it and send it to British museum if I ever find it...….
All the best

Hi, still looking for RCZ rear ABS sensor...would a Peugeot 3008 rear sensor fit & do the job?
The part are numbers are almost the same......almost......
Liking the car the more I drive it, really does grip on corners....
It certainly feels better sorted than a Audi TT, which, well, feels like a Golf.
Also have discovered the car is real head turner, with strangers coming up to ask about it...
never had that before with a car.
Thanks, Pedro
All the best

Yes your right they are a nice motor regarding the ABS sensor there were a few Zs being dismantled on ebay if I recall but if your having trouble getting hold of parts that's your only option worth checking out as its surprising how many there are being scrapped
good luck 👍

Hi folks, have checked out various dismantlers for rear ABS sensor however no joy.
I decided to give the dealers another go & this time they said they can get
one in a week from the factory ....Good old Arnold Clark ...…..I will report back
when (hopefully) it arrives... cost £68.
Small price to pay to keep this radical, stylish machine on the road
Thanks for your help

Hi RCZers, ABS sensor has finally arrived! Arnold Shark delivered! & "only" charged £62.
It has come all the way from the "factory".....in Peugeot packing & a glowing Made in China label
I will be cleaning the sensor & cable very carefully as Peugeot is part owned by Chinese & most of their factories
are in Wuhan.....
Arnold Clark did clean outside packing & were very helpful
Now to fit sensor. Normally the disc has to come off but I have ordered I special tool that MAY fit in between the disc & hub
I will let you know how I get on.
Also have the added benefit of the connecting plug wiring broken at join with bodywork plug......
Sure, a bit of Sellotape & a prayer will fix that......:eek:
all the best

you don't need to remove the disc

a normal allen key will go through one of the wheel bolt holes to undo the bolt.
