    Either get the fault fixed or take the dash apart and take the bulbs out.

    Car will still fail if ABS light does not come on at all.

    I thought the "bulbs" were actually LEDs soldered to the PCB.

    And as has been said, the ABS light needs to work for the MOT.

    .
    Yep the entire dash panel is made with LEDS, no chance of disconnecting the correct one without causing even more issues.

    Try a reset first with Tech 2 or Op-Com, may just be a temporary fault...otherwise fixing the fault is the only option.

    Have you tried disconnecting the battery overnight. - free to do, and sometimes works.

    if it wont pass an mot it wont pass a roadside check and will be issued with a PG9 prohibition notice hence dont use
    plus will class as driving a vehicle with defective brakes and will result in an endorsement on the drivers license
