    Default 97 taurus speed sensor

    I am replacing a speed sensor on a 97 taurus. The sensor is stuck. I
    removed the bolt and the hold down bracket was so rusted it fell apart.
    I pulled on the sensor as low as possible and the plastic top section
    came off. Any suggestions for removal would be greatly appreciated. I
    have tried pliers,a screw threw the middle,and a socket around it to
    break it loose. It will not budge.

    Same situation with my 99 Escort (still in one piece but won't budge
    either). From what I'd read, some people have had luck screwing a fat lag
    bolt into whatever's left (after drilling it) and pulling the whole thing
    out. Aside from that (what *I* fear), I think the transmission has to come
    out to remove it.

    Randy. The speed sensor (and you would notice if you already have
    bought a replacement) mates in a 'plain' hole about 1-1/4 inch diameter
    and about same depth. If it is rusted in place, it might take a bit of
    work to get it to break free. Have you squirted any WD40 or such around
    the joint? I am about to replace my daughter's in a 96. Haven't looked
    to see how tight a fit it is to get to it. Oh boy....
