    its a SMD so cant be removed (well not easily) best way though would be to smash the SMD itself.... i did this in the past with the airbag light on previous clocks with a screwdriver lol

    nowadays however I would choose to rectify the problem



    Why dont you do the same?

    Or arent you bothered about the safety aspect of there being an ABS fault present?

    i changed my clocks on my mk4, thought about breaking my airbag light, no point mate, might aswell get the problem sorted ans all the lights are there for your safety.

    but if you want to break it the light is a little diode that looks like a square just break that.

    easy way around it, take clocks out, unclip the clear part then put some black insulation tape across the lights lol, other than sort the problem that is. ;-)
