Default Honda '06 Civic Sensor O-Ring recall notice?

Last week, I got a notice from Honda informing me to take it to a dealer for an examination of seals on the real wheels. The anti-lock brake sensor seal o-rings could have been damaged, leading to moisture damage.Got it to the shop Monday. There was no damage to either wheel sensor.Anyone else here get the letter and/or had their ABS sensors examined? Anyone find any damaged o-rings?

this is what the Honda bulletin says on this condition. the o-ring is very easy to inspect to determine if the sensor was improperly installed at the factory. During assembly, some wheel speed sensors mayhave been improperly installed and do not seal the hubassembly. Water may enter the hub assembly anddamage the wheel bearing. In areas where road salt isused, the wheel bearings may corrode, which maycause the wheel to separate and fall off, increasing therisk of a crash.the recall does not require a good o-ring to be replaced. if the o-ring is damaged it will at a minimum require the replacement of the wheel speed sensor and possibly the rear hub.dealers do not have any incentive to not make required repairs. if they were to not repair a car that required a recall repair they are open to tremendous liability. plus, honda pays them well to do the repairs if they are required.i would imagine that the percent of vehicles that require a repair is extremely low.hope that helps
