Default 1998 A6 Q ABS Brake Sensor Question

I have been having problems with my ABS brakes for some time. I get an ABS pulsing when I come to a slow stop. Usually around 3-5 mph. After this continued for some time, the ABS light and Brake lights came on. I eventually had the ABS control module rebuilt and this got rid of the warning light issue and the pulsing at a slow stop. Then, a month or two ago I was driving in some very wet conditions and the pulsing during a slow stop returned. I'm getting a bit tired of this and I'm wonder if replacing the sensors at the brake/rotor area may fix this irritating situation. Is this a "do it yourself" operation?
I live in a more remote area on northern Minnesota and most local mechanics think an Audi is a belly-button that pokes out from a persons belly.

Thanks!

Usually that problem is caused by a dirty or damaged toner ring on the axle not by the sensor itself. You may want to inspect the toner rings on the axle before you go replacing sensors.
