Evening still waiting for a reply have been told that it is not a good idea to drill into the sealed hub that houses the magnetic censors to replace the ebs plastic transmitter for a vw touareg Harry

Hello Harry when the sensors are difficult to remove like this then often its because water has gotten in and corroded and swelled it out the only way to remove it in this instance is to destroy itnow if you are very careful and use a slow battery drill you can drill the sensor out the thing to watch is not to drill too deep as if you do overshoot then end of the sensor with the drill bit and plunge into the sensor ring then you'll have to replace the whole wheel bearing as the magnets are embedded into the bearing seal
