ECU is under the steering wheel, and it won't be hard to take out and put it back with right tools. However, you do need to reprogram/flash the system. On Ebay most sellers already sell you the ECU programed to your vin #, and the only thing you have to do is to take the old out, and put the new one in.

You can program the ECU before or after the instalation, but you need an special tool/scanner for this. The dealer will be to expensive, so check at your local auto shops, or call a car locksmith company. Good Luck
