If it is in there check also on the drivers side of the engine block. Often , on new models the ECU is mounted behind the fuel filter housing.

Here is the ECU:

Remove the battery cover to access the battery terminals. Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable with the pliers.
Open the glove box door and squeeze the outer part to remove the door. Locate the two screws behind the door to remove the glove box.
Access the ECU behind the glove box. Remove the electrical connectors by hand; remove the bolts mounting the ECU to the inner dash.
Install the new ECU in the same position. Replace the bolts and reconnect the electrical connectors.
Replace the glove box and the glove box door. Reconnect your battery.
