Question about 1985 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

Hi I have a 1985 Corvette and I need to remove the ECM which is in the Dash on the passenger side, how do I get that Dash pad assembly out to get to the ECM. According to my Chilton manual it comes straight out the front. I can't get to it from underneath....HElP.

I got some help from another source, the ECM is held in place with a bracket with two 10mm screws. When those are removed the ECM slides down and out from under the Dash. The only hard part about all of this is you have to practically stand on your head to see the ECM up inside of the Dash and to remove it, once it's out you can unplug the wiring harness and take it out of the car. I didn't have to remove the ECM from the car to do the Prom change out so the whole job took me about a total of 10 - 15 minutes once I figured out how to go about doing it. Thank you for the help.

1985 corvette, pulled the hood release and the diverside opened but not the passengers side so now i can't open the hood, how do i release the passenger side that is stuck

have someone push down on that part of the hood while you pull the release. Usually that frees it and it should be adjusted up so it will open again

Hood latch on passenger side needs adjusting, Have someone put pressure on side of hood when
you are pushing the hood latch release.
