UrS4 auto transmission probs

As a further piece of information, I have recently replaced a front
wheel bearing, and in the course of that, have stuffed up the ABS.
Hopefully just need to readjust a sensor.

During some web searching, I found a mention that:
"In the automatics, there is an electronically controlled multi-plate
clutch-differential, controlled via input from the ABS sensors."

So this may be my problem. I will try to fix the sensor, and see if the
symptoms are fixed.
