Remove Rear ABS Sensor Without Damaging Connector?

Let’s talk about removing Rear ABS Sensor

Have ABS or TRACS lights on? Here’s a Wheel Sensor Fix

These ABS sensors at the wheels are difficult to get out. Here’s how Volvo Forum member 2001VolvoXC70 did it.

I was able to slide the harness out between the gas tank and body of the car. I simply attached a couple of strings to the harness and covered it with duck tape. Then I smeared petroleum jelly all over it and slid it through the little space. With the string attached I was able to pull on the string towards the front of the car while pulling the sensor from under the wheel well towards the rear. With a bit of determination and diligence I found a spot near the front side of the opening where the harness is actually able to fit between the gap.
