1995 c280 abs sensor locations?

Hi I just got a 1995 c280. Abs light is on and speedometer isn't working everything I've read indicates a sensor. I have no idea where to look for these sensors on my car and what I've found online has not been helpful. I am heading to a scrapyard to pull a few parts today and would love to add these sensors to the list (hoping to avoid buying new) but not knowing where to find them or what I'll need to remove them is becoming a frustrating problem. Can anyone help with This? Pictures would be great but even just verbal instructions regarding where to find them and how to remove them would be ever so lovely. Digitized copies of appropriate pages from the service manual would be amazing. I've never owned a German car and I only dabble at working on vehicles as it is so I'm pretty lost currently. However I really do want to do this myself!

Thank you very much for the reply. Now for a dumb question as stated I only dabble in vehicular repair so what/where is the steering knuckle you are talking about?
Thanks for the info on the scanner as well as the other possible cause of the problem! I do plan on keeping it around awhile so will probably invest in this as soon as funds allow. I have an obd2 scanner that I used bunches on my previous car to diagnose problems so I know the value of these things. Unfortunately this car requires the obd1 scanner so my old scanner is useless.
Just checked your link to that scanner looks like obd2. Will have a closer look see if it has an adapter for the obd1 but if not this isn't going to work. Any recommendations for a good obd1 scanner?
