I've got a little problem on my Coupe. I believe the fault is on the front left ABS-sensor that's causing all the havoc I'm experiencing.
The car worked fine for half a year (except the ABS/TC light was lit in between) till it got serviced by Opel in June. When I picked the car up it worked fine for the first 10 minutes. Then I needed to shift down, I pressed the clutch in and the rpm gauge fell all the way - stopped on "0" and all the lights in the dash lit up.
I got the OP-COM and scanned the ECU and got this:

I had the car on some axle stands and tried to figure out the ABS-sensor. I managed to get off the caliper but really nothing else. I had a chat with the lads at Opel. They said the ABS-sensor sometimes got cracks/split and stopped working which lead to the engine dying. The ABS-sensor wasn't sold as a part for it's self, it's built into the wheel hub.
I found a guide on changing the brake discs here somewhere (it's saved it on my laptop) so removing them shouldn't be a problem, but how can i remove the wheel hub?
