The series 1 sensor is longer than a series 2, so if that is a series 1 hub, it probably has a series 2 sensor fitted. I think it will work if you modify the mounting lug to move it closer, but I don't know the correct clearance.

the car is mk2 and the sensor is the original one - i think!-
you mean cv joint by saying hub?
cos abs gear is over cv joint.
i think it is peugeot 405 cv joint !!

you are right
update:
until 1995 Xantia had 90mm abs gear with 48 teeth, and 29.8mm abs sensor length
From 1995 onwards Xantia have 99mm abs gear with 48 teeth, and 25.2mm abs sensor length
the sensor air gap can be from 0.6mm to 1.8mm
