What does the computer do after a nutter?

Exactly what the title reads... After the nutter can you just throw your computer out the window? What purpose(s) does it still serve?

Yup, and the wiring associated with it.

where is it normally hidden? i did he nutter on mine but never dug out the computer. i will undo mine too.

if its hidden well, i bet you could put a small amp in its place and run some higher power speakers off it so you don;t have ot worry about someone stealing it

don't have to take out the dash, only the glove box. It is behind the golve box held on by a bracket attached to the firewall. You can remove the computer, then any wire which is connected to it, and any sensor connected to the wires.

It is true. However, it is a bear to get out, don't be surprised if you wind up with some blood on your fingers, but it is still easier than taking the whole dash apart.

sweet!!

but this dash doesn't look horribly hard to remove. just to keep some conversation going. it seems very easy to take out as so much of its exposed.

bmw put the ecu on the e30 series in the same place. drop the glove box and undo the plastic cover and then ecu was right there held on by four 10mm bolts.

The dash may be harder to remove than you think. You have to disconnect the rollbar and drop the windshield, then remove a bunch of screws from plastic which is subject to break. Pray that your windshield hinges aren't rusted. Once you have done that you have a few torx on the front and have to get all the plastic across the front and your radio, gauges, heater controls, speakers speedometer and tach all disconnected. You also have to pull the steering wheel. Once it is all loose you have to wiggle it out over your steering column. Not quite as easy as the few nuts on the back of the glove box, but your call. Here's a pretty good thread
