I am trying the replace the ecm on a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Resolved Question:

I am trying the replace the ecm on a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT. Everything that I have read shows the ecm against the firewall behind the glove bax. What is the EASIEST way to get at it? Do I need to take apart the AC duct work, or disassemble the dash?

Tim,

Thanks for answering so quickly. I have done all that & don't see anything that even remotely resembles the part I have. The replacement part has this number on it: MR563843.

Thanks,

Mike

Does this lopk like the ecu you are replacing?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No, that is not the ECU I am replacing, unless I am trying to mess with the wrong one. Which ecu (ecm) controls the EGR solenoid. the fuse box one (front) or the one that I can't seem to find?
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 8 years ago.
The main ecu controls the egr solenoid, if its not behind the glove box, check under the passenger seat,
