2 Pad wear sensors (driver front, passenger rear)

Rear ABS sensors should come out with a gentle prying, fronts will more than likely break and/or become destroyed trying to remove them. Your best bet trying to remove the front ABS sensors is to remove the calipers and brake rotors, remove the hub nut dust cap, remove the hub nut, remove the wheel bearing/hub, remove brake dust shield, remove ABS sensor allen bolt, place a deep set socket over the end of the sensor and carefully tap it back through the kingpin/spindle. Chances are you'll still end up destroying them, so be prepared to purchase new ones.
