I've got an S16 (M reg) and it comes with a Bosch ABS unit - which has never worked. I've changed all the sensors and now managed to swap over the ECU to one I found in a breakers... but it still doesn't work! (there is a chance that the ECU I've found is also faulty I guess...) Anyway, I'm now going to try to change the pump unit itself over- but am expecting this to be a total bgger re bleeding.... so wondered what I'd need to do to convert to a GTI 6 ABS set up - which I understand is easier to bleed- and are certainly more plentiful in supply.

Anyone got any experience of doing this?

Assume I'd need the ABS unit, wiring harness and pipework...

Thanks!

I would hazard a guess that its the main power feed terminals in the top of the ABS bump that have corroded away.

pipework you should be able to adapt to fit the different pump,but you would need the ABS loom due to the different plug on the unit itself, no a major problem as it is a self contained loom, but a bit of a PITA as the loom goes over the top of the fuel tank.

Thanks for info - there are three harnesses which plug into the ABS unit I've got. One looks like the interface between the ECU and the pump - the other is a four pin plug (square in shape) and then there's a more sturdy longer multi pin (bit like a scart plug) plug. Will inspect the pins again - but is a real bgger as have changed all the sensors and still no joy!

Will have a go at swapping over the pumps themselves, but they are notoriously difficult to bleed apparently.

Any advice on exactly what to check re the power feed terminals?

Thanks!!

Mate - thanks for the offer - but you're a year late...!!!!! and I've fixed it so it all works fine now!

Changed the pump - and also the rear sensors - and had to clean up the brake light wiring loom as had corroded A LOT - leaving gunk over the terminals (like when you leave batteries in a remote for 5 years or so.) - that was shorting out and causing the brake light switch to log a problem in the ABS ECU - all sorted and works fine now.
