Default Where are the instructions?

Maybe I'm an idiot, but where how do I find the instructions for this job? All this says is to remove the old one and put the new one on.

Since this post is from 2006, in 2008 we had a forum virus and attack and lost a lot of the posts in their detail. Some stuff was salvaged, but clearly the images and full text was lost on this one.

I hear lots of different ways to remedy the ABS light coming on in my newly acquired 2001 SS. Computer analysis stated the sensors on the right front and right rear were bad.
OK. I see that Autozone has just the sensors for less than I can buy the hubs with the sensors, yet I see here that I should replace the whole hubs and not just the sensors.

I wonder why just the sensors are available if they should not be used. Can anyone verify that I should not just buy two speed sensors? It always seems that GM gives much different advice and instructions than many good mechanics that are not with GM, so I never know what to really believe.

Also, how do the speed sensors come out. The right rear is bad on my 02 SS, Napa has just the sensor, that I bought, and I'm stumped on how the sensor comes out of the assembly.

You don't replace just the sensors on these cars, it is part of a sealed assembly
