Ok, so I got the 10mm bolt that holds the harness to the ecu but how do you actually remove the ecu from the hangar bracket? Is there another bolt somewhere? Removing the stock ecu for a PimpX in case anyone was wondering. Thanks

Been 15 years since I pulled a PCM, but I seem to remember a small bolt clamping the PCM to the white plastic holder. Removing this bolt (maybe there is another one too??) and the PCM can be removed. Sorry I couldnt be of more help.

Thank you; I believe I read somewhere that there's a 7mm bolt holding the hangar/bracket but I'm not sure where it is
