I replaced mine. There's a screw at one end that you remove and then with a small screwdriver you release the tags on the sides and it swings down. It's sort of hinged at one end.

It comes off easily once you get the hang of it.

Yes. I figured it out in the end. I am always cautious about such things. An ecu or other gubbins with connectors and clips is just asking to be broken inadvertently.

Hi,

I have 2003 Mercedes Benz CLK320. I had a German Auto Repair shop say that I had a bad ECU and Front SAM. I knocked on the starter and the car finally got the car to start. However, when I turned it off and tried to restart it all I got was clicks. The Auto Repair wanted 2800.00 after their diagnostic fees to repair my car. I do not have that kind of money and now I think it is just the starter. I took the ECU out that he said had got water in it and the SAM. The look fine no water damage that I noted. However, with the car clicking when trying to start it I was thinking that I could remove the ECU send it in for repair and buy a new SAM from PartsGeek so I removed the ECU. Now I want to reinstall it however, when I go to slide the connectors back in place with the levers they will not go it. Am I doing something wrong or is there a trick to sliding them back in. I really need help to get this car up and running ASAP. I have also decided to buy a new starter and go from there.

V/R,
