Hi, I have a problem with my abs, when I brake lightly I get a ticking sound (a sort of fast ratatat) from the ABS pump. It is almost like there is air in the system and the pump keeps activating. Any ideas?
It still brakes allright. Maybe there is some grease at the rear ABS sensor. that I have to clean when I have some time.

Is the ticking proportional to wheel speed?

Air in the system you'd probably feel but you can't test for it - needs a bleed to remove if you suspect.

Sensor problem would normally give you dash lights.

Check the ABS wheel isn't bent. Had something similar with mine that was triggering the ABS pump. Take the wheel off, spin it and check the ABS wheel is in line. Bent mine back into shape and problem solved.
