Can I unplug the front ABS sensor and drive the car without warning lights etc?

No sorry if a sensor is disconnected it will log it as a fault and the ABS warning light will come on (and no ABS, but you can still drive the car obv.)

If I drive the car and then reconnect a new ABS sensor will it clear the fault code or would it require fault code removal by Peugeot?

I was fitting a new top mounts, hubs, struts and dampers and the old ABS sensor would not come out Angry

If you replace the sensor and unplug the battery it will clear the code, well it will at remove the ABS light on the dash (I needed a new sensor on mine when I got it and the light went away with a replacement).

Yeah you can either disconnect the battery, or I've been told after "a number" of ignition off/on it will clear logged faults as well... but AFAICS every time you fire it up, the ABS unit checks the status of the sensors - if they check out OK, then it should be happy.

You don't even need to disconnect the battery. The fault will clear when a good signal is received from all sensors at above 8mph.

As Rich says. Hence why whenever you put a car on a RR you'll get the ABS light on indicating a fault as the fronts have been spinning and the rears stationary so it thinks the rear sensors are f*cked.
