Hello, sorry for the delay, You have to remove the panel shown to access it, I included a link showing this and location

Unsure, hard to tell by the pics, 3rd picture, poking out from the main wire loom I see a square box, black, I think that is the general area, is that it?

Hey Randall,
I got in there again and see the unit your talking about but I can not dislodge it. I tried to push and pull in every way and direction I could, just short of ripping it out but no luck. How does it come out.
Thanks Ken

it is bolted on with a small bolt throught he bracket, You need to move whatever wire etc wise around it and unblot the bracket, This is explained in the firct file I sent you and shows picture of the boltwhich I think is 10mm
