Best Answer

You will need a 10mm socket, short and long extensions, 13mm wrench and a flat-blade screwdriver. 1. Disconnect and remove the battery. 2. Locate the 2 10mm bolts on the right side of the elctrical relay panel (big black rectangular box to the right of the battery). Remove the bolts, and tilt the panel to the left. 3. Remove the 10mm bolts holding the ECU to the driver-side fender well. Tilt the ECU away from the wall, then disconnect the 2 plugs on the end (squeeze the top of the U-shaped retainer on the side of the plug to release).
