2014 Nissan Versa 1.6 S 1.6L (HR16DE) (RE0F11A)—3N1CN7AP5EL859214
Left Front Wheel Sensor Erratic Signal

Had a versa today that needed a bearing and hub, no big deal, get hub and bearing straight from nissan do the work and road test. During road test I always scan the speed sensors from a bad experience a while back on a vehicle that had a tone ring in the bearing. Anyway very quickly I noticed the signal was all over the place and I knew I was in for it. Removed the brand new bearing thinking I must have damaged somehow and sure enough it was perfect cosmetically. So I pulled out my handy card from ate that shows the tone ring and sure enough it had no ring from the factory installed! I felt dumb as I am one of those geeks that likes to check before I installed but was slammed and trusted the factory part I got...just a reminder.

ps had a toyota avalon recently that had a faulty under hood purge solenoid out of the box last week that was also from toyota.

Did you happen to check other side of bearing? I agree it should be on the same side as there one you removed, just hard to believe part with same number could have been assembled with out reluctor. I have had plenty of electrical components, even from dealers be faulty, but a mechanical part is rare in my experience, especially from dealer.

Thanks for the post, Elias. It's hard to imagine such a QC error on an OE like that, but goes to show that nothing's perfect. Was (or is) there any thought to parts being counterfeit and making their way into the supply chain? And yes, I just ordered 3 of the ATE tool for my team.

Google "magnetic viewing film"...lots of options and get a few extra if you have kids...it'll keep 'em busy for at least 5 minutes

Did you find any indication of at least a tiny bit of magnetism? I wonder if it got "erased" somehow after production, Thank you for posting about this. We should never fully rely on parts being perfect!
