One other point has come to mind on the abs ring itself. You'll probably notice when you take it off, it should be a solid black ring which is sensed by the wss.
On my faulty bearing, the ring was broken in places as if it has cracked up and parts fallen away, causing the dodgy reading which showed up on the logs.


So either of the following could give the same symptoms, which should show on the vcds logging graph:
Faulty wss
Broken wire in loom to wss
Damaged / worn abs ring

The good thing is, if the data log does show the above, it takes the guess work away allowing you to quickly resolve the issue by replacing which ever part is the problem.

@jason_rmh

Changed the bearing today and fixed  :notworthy:
Changed the bearing and went for a drive, the wss fault cleared itself but I was still struggling with the steering not wanting to budge. So I ran the above check for all the wss and they were all correct. I then finally got the steering light off and steering back to normal, but my eps and tpms was illuminated. Nervous of loosing my steering setting again I was hesitant of looking to address them again, I did with limit stop and they went but my steering went again :scared: but drove and did limit stop and all gone. Thanks so much for this insight Jason it gave me the drive I needed  :happy2:

@dazza as above, can we sticky this as the problem is only going to become more of an issue as more bearing age.

That's great @v4rley! Glad you got it sorted, happy to help :)

What state was your old bearing in? Was the sensor ring damaged / worn?

Yes the old one was much the same as your badly worn with some parts missing. Also there is a rattle from the ball bearings when shacking it so good job done
