[A4] ABS Module....

There is no need for down time. Remove the old one and wrap the area well. 
You can drive the car but won't have abs. You don't have it now if the unit 
has gone south on you. I used MM a coupe of years ago to rebuild my son's A4 
and drove it for a week while MM did their job. This is also a good time to 
inspect your washer reservoir / washer pumps for defects. Good luck and it 
is a easy job to do.
