ECU removal

2001 Eclipse GT Sportronic 95,000 miles

Had a lot of electrical issues and it turns out the idiot who put in the new ECU a few months back got the wrong one. I don't trust him to do the work again but got the info so I can return it and get the correct ECU. I've got the battery removed, I just need to know what I need to remove from under the dash to get the ECU out easiest. I'd rather not have to take the entire dash out if at all possible. It looks like I just need to remove the screws to the plastic right in front of the vent/ecu then remove the vent.

Was hoping to find a How to on this but maybe I'm just over thinking it.

Just looking for pointers and verification.

The ECU is located on the passenger side somewhere beneath the glove box. You'll have to remove a small piece of black plastic to get to it. It does not require touching the dashboard at all.

There is a "how-to" in the "eclipse garage" section.
