    Its located behind the steering wheel.

    You remove the steering wheel and then the plastic cowling to get to it. I recon 1/2 hour labour to change it.

    Do you have the fault code number? Was the fault cleared first to see if it returns. Sometime fault codes can appear if a control unit can't see its associated components, but they may actually be okay.
