First you need to contact the website owners and ask them to remove the links (Google's recommendation). Wait for a week, and if you don't get any answer then you can use the disavow tool.

Here's more on what you need to do and how a disavow file should look like - https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2648487?hl=en

Yes, if you disavow certain backlinks from your website, it will affect your SERPs. Prepare a file of the links, which you want to Disavow then upload it from your webmaster account. Google will take a certain period of time to neglect those links from crawling.

The Disavow Tool allows you to ask Google to remove certain URLs or domains as a ranking factor in the indexing of your site. You do this by creating a .txt file with a list of these domains or URLs and submitting it to Google. for this follow the below steps

1. Locate the offending link. The best source for your backlinks is in Google Webmaster Tools > Search Traffic > Links to Your Site > Who links the most > More > “Download more sample links” and “Download latest links.” Audit this list using an automatic or manual review process.

2. Research the link to find webmaster contact information for the site. A contact form or email address is sufficient.

3. Contact the webmaster and request removal.

4. Wait a reasonable amount of time – about a week.

5. If no action, reach out to the webmaster again to request removal.

6. If the webmaster does not respond, create the disavow.txt file, following the instructions below.

Disavow tool is used to remove all the unnatural links that are often treated as spam. Google webmaster allows this facility to remove all those links. Only go for this tool if you are 100% sure about the spam links which are hurting your website. If not never try this because it can directly affect to backlink traffic and ranking as well.

In order to disavow links, there are two options i.e. using Google’s Link Disavow tool or sending link removal request through email. For using Disavow tool, you need to log in Google webmaster tools and then choose your domain. Once done, you need to upload your file.

I think this will help some sites recovering and also make your competitors harder to hit your website.The disavow tool does take some time to work. The offending pages with the dodgy links need to be re crawled before they get disavowed.
