I need to find a 2002-2004 Hyundai SantaFe FWD, 6 cyl. and strip a
Wheel Hub SPeed Sensor from it in order to get my trouble indicator
light to go off. Ive checked with local Dealers and they want well
over $200 for this tiny simple sensor. Please advise. Thanks.
You can do a search at www.car-part.com, but expect several problems:
1. The junk yard will not want to sell you the sensor alone.
2. You will need to buy the entire steering knuckle to get the
3. If you find a you-pull-it junk yard, you're likely to not be able
to get the sensor out of the knuckle without damaging the sensor.
This is especially true of a vehicle that's been sitting in a junk
yard rusting away.
What does this do to sales of
after-market wheels ?
I've seeen some pretty nice ones at the tire store,
but I'm put off by the whole "pressure sensor" hassle....

Right, and you won't know until you've installed it if it works at all,
and if it does, it's about the same age as the one that failed....
Can you buy it somewhere new? Rock Auto has sensors for ABS for $75-100.
No affiliation other than satisfied customer. Try any local auto parts
places that may exist. Junkyards are great for some things, but this
wouldn't be my first choice for this problem.
