I have a 93 and I want to remove the ecm for painting ,at least I think thats what it is . Its the box that has the chip in it. Can I just unplug it and take it off , and how do you unplug it. Thanks for your help as usual Jim.

If it's anything like my 85 just be sure to disconnect battery prior to disconnecting/removing. There should be a couple of harnesses that simply unplug.
By the way, you're painting the car not the ECM:eek

I would not unplug the ECM unless I had to, there are tons of contacts inside the connectors and tons of chances for a bad connection. I would unbolt it and carefully move it around as much as I could. But, that's just my opinion I could be wrong...

I have done it successfully before, but the connector plug has about 50 (?) very
small pins that are hard to line up when you re-connect. It is one of those things that you say " I think that went in correctly" , I don't think that I will try that again. :eek
