Default How to Find & Remove Your ECU

hey guys, this is gonna be a short DIY of the location of the ECU of the 6thgen for whatever reason you might come across.

disconnect the battery first.

at the bottom of the glovebox, there are two black tabs that hold the bottom in place. remove these two tabs.

after remove the tabs, there will be 5-6 screws holding the frame of the glovebox in. remove the screws

glovebox hanging, the frame is taken off

glovebox taken off, frame is off. if you are doing this, checking your in-cabin air filter is a good idea.

and there she is! the ECU, i mean. it is held inside that gold-looking bracket and you can see the connectors from below.

after completing the instructions in the picture, you're ECU is officially disconnected from the car.

i know back years ago, Jet Performance would mod the ECU for you to make the car faster by mailing it out to them. Technosqaure does or did the samething. when my friend use to own a 6thgen max, he shipped out his ECU to Jet Performance, and with an intake and a flashed ECU, he beat me by 2 car lengths. my car was in stock form back then. pretty interesting but if you any questions just ask!! : - )
