Talking Newbie

Hello. I'm new to the forum. I just sold my 2009 Infiniti and re-took possession of my 2000 S80 my daughter has been driving the past six years. It's a 2.9 with 216k miles. I'm looking forward to working on it and keeping it running for another 216k. I'm also looking forward to getting ideas on repairs.

Speaking of which, can anyone offer insight into changing the rear wheel hub? Once I got the rotor off, I wasn't sure what I was looking at--a miniature brake drum? It is held onto the old wheel hub by horizontal springs. Is this the ABS sensor relay? How to I safely remove it?

Thanks for any insight you can offer.

The brake drum inside the housing of the disc brake rotor is the parking brake assembly.
It operates like conventional brake drums.
Brake shoes are within which can be prone to delaminating themselves from the metal shoes and jamming up.
Check they are all okay whilst you have it all dissassembled.

see this link: covers a 98 S70 but procedures / setup quite similar.
