ESP Module Intermittently Inop

Hello All,
I am the proud parent of an 06 SLK280 that had 74K on it last month when I bought it, but now has 78K on it because I haven't stopped driving it ! I am getting an intermittent message that my ESP is, either, Unavailable or Inoperative. A mechanic told me that the ESP module goes bad and I've seen them, used, really inexpensively so I figure the new ones can't be that much either. My question is: Does anyone know where the little devil is, in the car and is it difficult to replace? I'm pretty competent and, if it's "plug and play", I'll knock it out. But, if it's a "project", I'll have the mechanic do it.
As with all MB products, when the ESP is out, you lose your Cruise Control and I use that a lot. Comments? Advice? Snide Remarks? Thanks!!!
