so its you that kills all the ecu's at the wreckers LOL do you mean the security panel over the ecu or getting it out the ecu there should be 2 screws on the ecu to remove the cover .as for the security panel if you have one you need to drill out the rivots at the bottom of the panel which is a mission they are super hard drill slow or you will melt drill bit afdter drill bit.

You should be able to see one clip up under the glovebox, and then just pull it out with a bit of jiggling. I had the door sills out when I did mine that probably made it easier

Stocky: I think he is talking about the plastic kick panel itself?
