ok...so i lost my speed\odometer yesterday morning. i did some searching here and saw that the sensor was prone to go out. I took the thing apart this morning and this is what i found. should i glue\epoxy it back together, or just get a new one?
Yours looks to be damaged to much to be able to glue it back together. When mine broke it was into just two parts. Yours looks to be in a bunch of little pieces that you would likely not be able to get back together straight.
Be sure to lube it with some grease when you put it back together. Occasionally taking it out, cleaning and relubing is a good idea too. I usually do that to my sensor every other oil change and when every I replace the front tire.
Inspect the seal and if it is damaged order a new one when you order the new rotor.
Yes lacking lubrication is likely the primary cause. Mine originally broke at about 7,000 miles. I glued it back together and went to a regular schedule of cleaning and relubing it. The glued together part lasted to about 36,000 miles before it came apart at the glued joint. That time I just went ahead and purchased another one.
