ABS sensor bolt size?

ABS sensor bolt size? was created by NickR
Hi all,

I had my first try at kingpin bearings this week, and managed to shear the ABS sensor bolt as seems quite common! I have drilled and tapped it out, and I think I managed to clean up the original threads without too much damage, but am wondering what the size is of the standard bolt? I am surprised that I can't find it on the forum somewhere, but I want to be sure I pick the right length etc for a replacement.

The other side has had several extra applications of WD40, to try and avoid having to do it all again in a few days time!!!

Thanks in advance

Nick

Thanks Jack,

M6 means I am on the original threads which is good news :)

100% sure it's M6 as above. I had to helicoil the backing plates on our Jimny back to M6 as both bolts snapped when I attempted to remove. Now replaced with stainless steel including the helicoil inserts.

I happen to have a selection of m6 roof bolts with the double flat drive slot, a 16mm one is doing duty on my near side and is perfect.

Thanks for the confirmation, guys!

I haven't found any suitable bolts in my various jam jars yet, so I have put it all back together without it for now - well, I watched while my daughter put it back together! I quite like the supervisor role!! Then we can get on with the other side and try not to break it as well! I will have spares by then hopefully anyway :)

I did notice that, when the sensor is in, if it is not perfectly aligned with the mounting bolt hole, the tip hits the sensor ring - there does not seem to be any possibility for adjustment. I know it has to be close (at least in theory - I haven't fiddled with ABS sensors before), and I hope that the new bolt will hold it in the perfect position, but has anyone else noticed if this is "normal"? The sensor has a plastic collar on it that has some slight damage from removal, but it looks like it is sitting very snugly and centrally in it's hole, so it is only rotation from the mounting hole alignment I am intrigued by. The car goes ( a few metres), stops and engages 4WD normally, so everything else checks out.

I have replaced kingpin bearings and seals to both sides recently and in doing so destroyed the plastic collars for both sensors, i have had no problems by just fitting the sensors centrally.
But if anybody has a link or a cobble together of the collars i would be grateful.

Just to add a note in case it helps anyone out. My apprentice replaced the kingpins on the other side over the weekend, and sheared the other ABS bolt exactly as I had showed her how to!!

But, if you can get the old one out and clean the M6 threads, and you are replacing the swivel seal bolts as I was, then the old oil seal bolts are a perfect fit and length! That gave me plenty of spares to use :)

Both plastic collars broke where they are very narrow (why are they quite so fragile!!), but managed to re-use them. +1 for stocking them as spares.

Bit of a bonus on my 2016 Jimny. I've been undoing ALL the nuts and bolts underneath and cleaning/copper greasing the lot as a precaution. The ABS bolts were dealt with but I found that instead of a plastic sleeve on the sensor unit itself as on my 2006, this one has 4 fins or ribs which make contact with the orifice and don't grip or seize.
