IIRC , the carlton was the first to have ABS fitted as standard across the range , from 1.8L to 3.0GSi
removing abs would invalidate insurance !
if you have a fault with your abs ,do a search on here, it's well covered.
if you want to remove ABS for a non road going "track day car" you'd need a rear pressure reducing valve .
75% of the braking is done by front brakes
such a NON ABS system and components can be found on budget Vauxhall astra G (mk 4 1998-2004)
If the above post contains spelling mistakes / grammatical errors / poor use of the quote function / a very weak retort, or is generally shyte; it's because I'm feked on a cocktail of drugs,homebrew and carb cleaner.sorry

I would imagine that like any modification as long as you tell the insurance company then insurance wont be a problem.
ABS isnt a legal requirement but like most features on cars or bikes if its fitted it has to work, removing the whole system including its indicator lamps should be fine.

Why not speak to your insurance company to confirm your position?

There is of course other ways of finding out such as asking Honest John.
If you're not aware there is a site called Honest John which will provide advice on this topic.

Nothing lost and possibly much to gain.
