ECU Box

Hi Guys,

I'm looking forward to shipping the ECU Box to DINAN in order to upgrade the ECU software to Stage 3.

I really need a clear guide on removing the ECU Box ASAP; as I searched the forum and came up with no results.

Thanks in advance!

You need to ship the entire box or just the ECU? ECU is easy, disconnect the 2 connectors and then there are two clips that hold it into the box. Pull those forward and pull up.

Are you sure? Don't know what good it would be to send along the plastic box that holds the ECU that you want tuned.

The ECU pops right out after being unplugged/ unclipped per r45's note above.

Look at the JB3 and Proceed Install DIY's...it'll show you everything you need to pull the ecu out and even get access to.

you can watch any of the jb3 or vishnu install videos that help you get to that location and then unclip it like everyone is saying
