Wheel speed sensor doesn't fit. Please help w/ hub assembly
I'm over at 1337ssei'* house, and we just used a 3-arm puller (normally used for supercharger pulleys) to take the wheel hub off his 97 SSEi. We've taken it off, but I think the wheel hub fell apart within the steering knuckle. There are lots of plastic rings and goop, and the wheel hub fell away from the speed sensor. Now, we just have some wires sticking out, and the sensor cable is still clipped on and dangling loosely while the hub is away from the car.
We've been digging with a flat head screwdriver to remove the rings and goop so we can have a hole to fit the new wheel speed sensor. For right now, there'* such a tight fit that even the wires from the old wheel speed sensor won't pull through. I can't figure out what'* stuck. Please let me know how to dig out those rusty metal rings with orange goop that doesn't smell like anything.
