SOURCE: abs fault on vw passat
After taking the car back to our most excellent garage they quickly diagnosed the fault with the ABS. It was to do with the gap between the sensor and the wheel - it has to be a very precise distance and was disturbed by the changing of the CV boot (seems to be a common problem).
Half hour later and it is as good as new - this was after lots of electronic testing etc. - the clue was that it didn't give any registered fault on the diagnostic computer.
Hope this helps you Saxoste

It's your speed sensor at the transfercase on the drivers side i believe. Check the wire and clip to the sensor for any break or loose contacts.
Easy fix and is about a 30 min job to do with simple tools. Un-clip the wire conntection, remove the retainer bolt and slide and sensor out. To install just do everything in reverse and add transmisson oil if needed.
Most of the time, it's going to be the sensor. Keep in mind that there are two sensor's so make sure it's the one on the output shaft at the transfercase. The other one is closer to the front of the transmission on the same side with is the input Volosity speed sensor.
If it was your ABS sensor, you ABS light would come on in your dash.
Good luck and hope this helps
