Default replacing the VSS on a manual Vue

To make a long story short, you may need a 12mm x 1.75 bolt 3" long screwed into the outer housing in order to extract the old sensor. I did not have to heat up the bolt to get better thread engagement, but that was a possibility if at first the bolt pulled out.

Before the bolt trick worked I was afraid I would have to drop the engine cradle to gain access. It can be seen from above, but on ramps I could only feel it from underneath.

Wife drove it around the block, speedometer gave steady readings.

I had pulled a sensor at a junk yard. It had abnormal wear particles on it as well as normal rubbing wear particles. If my sensor had metal particles on it I thought that might be affecting the readings. But my sensor was clean.

I just realized: The only reason my sensor was "clean" was because it came out in pieces. When the inner magnetic part came out any metal particles could have dropped of the outer sheath.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Hey!

I just did this about 3 times over thinking my sensor was my issue and it was a faulty ground wire. I picked up my sensor for like 30$ at autozone and it worked fine.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
