You'd have no ABS or DSC/AST

Remove them permanently or remove them while working on the car?

I'd just look into just moving it if you're trying to find space. I'm sure you could relocate it rather than delete.

Your speedometer and odometer won't work.

I think that actually opens up a time warp continuum.

it will cause a catastrophic failure of the retroencabulated regurgitator, in turn the Large Hadron Collider will also have a failure and we will all be sucked into a black hole. Sounds like fun! DO IT!

Or, you could just re route them :O

You'll have fun driving your car. You control the braking, not some damn nanny. Better practice your threshold braking.

I had a duff abs sensor and the speedo and other bits still worked, just no ABS or traction, just unplug one of the sensors and hey presto!

I think Pobsey is on the right track here. FWIW I don't think the abs sensors have anything to do with the speedometer in a MINI.
