Default PCM Removal need help

2000 LS, my pcm is located under the dash, on the firewall, the book shows taking out two screws which I have done and then says to use a 90 degree pick to release locking tabs which seem to be right around where the screws went through. For the life of me I can not find tabs and every direction I have pried nothing has happened. Can anyone tell me the secret??

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: PCM Removal need help

From the factory service manual;

Remove the PCM bracket attachment screws.
PCM (1)
PCM Bracket (2)
Locking Tab - Left Side (3)
Locking Tab - Right Side (4)
Depress the tabs on each side of the PCM bracket using a 90 degree pick tool to release it from the I/P bracket.
Remove the PCM from the PCM bracket.


Is this drawing the same as yours?

Is there a reason for replacing it?

thanks, yes that is it. I sure dont see the tabs or how to release them yet I will take another shot at it. I have car torn apart and although I had something over it seems water and debris may have gotten down into it since I had the weather cover and the electrical connections loose. So wanted to get it out where I can look at it good and turn it upside down. Plus about to rain again and dont want to take anymore chances. Not where I can put it back together yet and my car new car cover was stolen.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
