Default Rear offside ABS sensor

Having just passed MoT the car decided to throw an ABS fault on the rear right (offside ) ABS sensor. I removed it today (the securing torx screw and the sensor both came out cleanly which was a good start!). Cleaned it up as it had a fair bit of gunge on the face) and replaced it. Cleared the codes and the fault came back almost straight away. So it looks like the sensor is gubbed. I note the post/sticky about adapting an A4(?) rear sensor for the front S8 so i assume this pertains to the rear as well? Unless anyone has a spare hanging about they want to sell i guess thats the best route?

Well, a working ABS sensor from PMS (thanks Maria) was only 11 so bought and fitted just before the annual meet. All now good
