ABS sensor damaged at the end

got the dreded dsc,asc brake combo...

Had the codes read and the issue seems to be rear right ABS sensor , ive taken it out and there seems to be some damage to the end of it.... is there any way to test the ABS sensor still works or is faulty ?

ALso when i get the new one do i need to take the break disk out and make sure there is no damage or sumthing stuck int he cogs that send the signal to the sensor....dont want to fit a new one then it just gets caught in something and breaks again...

any ideas ?

Most probably faulty and it's well documented here that front or rear ABS sensors tend to die. At least you didn't fall into the trap of replacing the DSC unit like some did. After you remove the sensor just clean the whole area from debris.
