General advice on ECU removal....
Posted 11 September 2004 - 10:22 PM
This question will probably scream loud and clear just how un-mechanical I am, but I am going to swap the ECU out of a 88 DL for use in another Subie, and the mechanic told me just to unscrew it, located near the steering wheel....
I think I have discovered its location, but does anyone have any general advice on doing this?
Is it that cut and dried, just open the panel and unscrew?
Any advice would be helpful and relieve the stress of doing this probably very easy task.

remove mounting things for ecu
disconnect the plugs on the ecu
put new ecu in place
re attach ecu
put panel back on
and drive away
thats is if it all works
