I used this guide to removing the ABS controller:

They also do the repair, mine was totally shot so the repair cost me ú209, but at least you get a warranty and can drive the car whilst it's being done.
Then all the complaints about the feeble design of the unit and the need for a recall (yeah good luck with that) are here:
