Showcase cover image for Relocating the ECU on SH

General Information

So I wanted to relocate my ECU for safety purposes in the event if water came in.

When I removed the glovebox I opened it and used a flat head to pop the clips off of the glove box frame.

Then there are a total of four 10mm bolts that need to be removed from the plate three you can see and one is in the back higher up on the foot well. After removing those bolts I was able to access my ECU. At this point I removed the two 10mm bolts that mounted the ECU to its bracket and unplugged it. (Take photos incase you forget which order they go!)

After unplugging the ECU I was able to figure out exactly where I wanted to mount it. Do this before plugging it back in so you can trim the plastics if needed as I did. Only reason I trimmed it was so it would be able to close with our rubbing anywhere.

Once I found out where I wanted to mount it I drilled four holes and mounted it with four self tapping screws. The above photo and below photo are both close ups of the sections I cut so there wasn’t any rub
