Does anyone know if the Xbar module (N7K-C7009-FAB-2) can cause any impact?

The replacement will take action during the maintenance window, but better safe than sorry.

Thanks in advance for answers

The Cisco Nexus 7009 switch has up to five fabric modules located on the front of the chassis. You can replace one of these fabric modules at a time while the switch is in full operation.
