Could anybody give me an idea on how much it would cost to have a garage repair the offside tone ring. could I do it myself without having to remove the drive shaft? any advice would be grateful, thanks

What happened to the TONE RING? Why do you think that is your problem? Never seen one give any trouble! Most of the time it's the sensor.
And no it can't be replaced! Don't think it is available without the axle.

its without doubt the tone ring. had the wheel off today and it has split

Well i guess you are going to need an axle and most likely the speed sensor as the split ring has probably damaged it.

I am looking at this same repair myself on a 2004 Santa Fe. I have found the ABS ring at Autozone for $15 dollars and this part can be replaced on its own. The issue is the labor involved. I haven't looked into how much a garage would charge, but it does seem like the suspension needs to be removed to access where the ring is located. The shaft doesn't have to be completely removed, but everything up to that point looks like it needs to be.

Do it yourself and save the labor money! The smart thing to do, after all that work, is to replace the axle assembly as the only thing left to do is simply remove it from the vehicle! It does not cost 'that' much more and you no longer have to worry about why the ring gave you a problem to start with, or having to do the job all over again later. It's actually less labor that way also. Either way you go be sure the sensor gets checked for any damage!
