W201 Rear - in differential - ABS sensors - alternatives?

G'day Folks,

I was wondering if anyone has come across this problem before.

"Price of W201 rear ABS sensors" at the dealership - holy crap!

Perhaps some one who is at one with electrickery has found an alternative?



The data I have so far is as follows =>

A2015400017 early version with a pin sticking out equivalent Bosch 0 265 002 008

{This isn't meant to go with my differential}




Later models that look like mine =>

A2015402217 Normal ABS Bosch number 0 265 002 230 - 182 ex tax @ dealership

A2015402317 with ASD Bosch number 0 265 002 232 - 182 ex tax @ dealership



I want to replace with A2015402217 / Bosch number 0 265 002 230

But I don't want to pay 182 euros plus tax!



I've seen W124 sensors that are way cheaper but I don't know the differences in the sensors to know if they are going to work

For example Bosch number - 0 265 002 208 or Mercedes 1245401917

Does anyone know how I can find this out, other than buying and trying?

If the sensors are 2 wire, I'd expect them to be a coil of wire wrapped around a magnet. This will make a AC wave form and generate voltage.

I'd expect other cars to use the same rear diff and sensor body so at that point only wire length would change. Have a look at the 190rev.com site, someone has probably tried this.

I was thinking the same (about the wire length) - thanks.

190rev - hmmm - nice forum - almost impossible to access!

No auto-recycle yard nearby that will yield up a sample from a 124 car that you can inspect?

It is a part that gets snipped for ease of removal - well ease of removal of the differential

I have just found a new unused W124 sensor (the one listed above) for a not too too bad price (60 euros including postage) that I'm going to try...

...60 euro gamble - you pays ya money and ya takes ya chance!

Mini update

I got the Bosch W124 part and it fits in the differential and does not foul the sensor wheel on the pinion shaft.

No great shock.

A small step forward I know but an important one!

Next update

Small steps - getting there slowly

This is what the wire on the inside of the car is meant to look like wit the W201 sensor fitted



Here's the longer (good guess) wire of the W124 sensor fitted



Well I can live with that.

Still I'm not out of the woods just yet - I don't know if the sensor will work.

Fingers crossed.

Sorry I forgot to update.

Works like a charm.

As far as I can make out the only difference is the length of the wire (W124 being a fatter bastard)
