OK!!!! How about anyone know how to take the ABS sensor out? I took the 5mm screw out already and the damn thing is still not moving.

It is a pretty tight fit but once the screw is removed it will come out. Try spraying some JB Blaster penetrating oil on it and tapping it lightly. There's not much to the sensors, they're just magnets really. There should be one on each wheel. Do you have the Bentley service manual for the E36? If not you can download one free here: Bentley Service Manual for E36 . It'll explain a lot of stuff.
