Note: It is recommended that you wear an ESP strap once the cover is removed to protect the electronic components inside from static electric.

1) Remove the ECU from the car (This can be found under the bonnet, in the plastic box to the right of the battery). Unbolt it from its mounting bracket.

2) Carefully bend back the 8 Tabs on the back of the ECU casing using a small flat head screwdriver.
