CONTROLUNITS in Uffculme for ABS repair (in an hour)!

Post by Jameszy » Fri Apr 05, 2019 6:56 pm

Dreaded 3 dash lights came on a few weeks back, and my C110 confirmed it was the ABS pump not wheel sensor or anything (coders 5DF0 and 5DF1).

Was going to use ECUTesting, but needed it done quickly as am doing a Euro Trip this week.

Found “CONTROLUNITS” just outside of Exeter. For £360.00 they removed my ABS pump, switched out the motor (so one with new brushes basically), flushed the lines and back on the road. Took about an hour. They also warranty their work for 5 years.

A bit cheaper to use ECUTesting if you have the time/can sort the brake bleed yourself, but thought I’d contribute my experience.
