I came across quite a few things that could be the ECUs when I had part of the dash off the other week - @stevemen might be able to advise where the ECU is if he's broken one or two of them. What exactly do you need access to the ECU for?

I was going to run some new wires to the coolant temp sensor
As it reads incorrect in live data.

Cheers for your help:)
Wire diagram anyone ?? 😬
I searched the web for ages for one, just to find the Zexel control sleeve position sensor feedback wire! Gave up (I now think it's the green wire btw).
There's a translated manual on Amazon that has been linked to before. No idea if it's just a translated owners handbook, but it's not cheap if you were to take a chance.
Have you chased it round the loom in the engine bay? If there was a break that must be where it would be.

The workshop manual on Amazon and the like is a transalted workshop manual with technical info.

There is also a translated owners manual, that's just the handbook, and not worth buying really. The workshop manual, I have been told, is full of useful technical info.

Opened the loom up in the engine bay and the wires are corroded. So I was hoping just to put some new wires in rather than cutting it back and trying to find some clean wire
