Rebuilding my FICM

I've determined my FICM has taken a dump on me on my '04 6.0 powerstroke. Is there a resource that I can go to that has a step by step on "How to" rebuild my FICM? I'm looking to rebuild it and not heat it up. I'm very mechanical and work on electronics frequently in my work so I wouldn't be afraid to dive into it. It would depend on how much time I have. Thx!

Thanks NYC F-350 for the reply but the link for the pdf downloaded a damaged or dead file. Tried multiple times. My adobe reader couldn't open it.

Just a heads up, it's not easy. I had to buy a new one..... Just saying.

The yellow stuff was hard for me to get off, it was pulling up all kinds of other stuff even though I was heating it up before removing.

Best of luck

Got the pdf on my home pc ok. Now I'm puzzled. I've been searching around on Powerstroke.org and found some info on how to test the unit. The most common test is the key on votage test to the right screw; if it's 48V it's fine. Well I have 47.8V. However, I did a few other tests that are not so commonly published such as the left screw, key on. The info I have says I should have no less than 36V but over 45V is best. I have .035V. Is this a valid test?? Yesterday it wouldn't start at all. Tonight when I tried the cranking voltage test if fired right up...a bit rough mind you. I don't get it. All my codes though point to the FICM. All the codes for low voltage for all the injectors (all cylinders), and the P0611 code. I also get a P0320 which I've read could also be caused by the FICM. I have my FICM pulled out and I'm fairly sure it's the culprit. Any advice??

The single most important reading is on a COLD engine, cranking it over. If it falls below 46, its junk.
Having all those codes, it is dead. Try Ficmrepair.com, Ed will fix you right up.

The more I read about this, the more I think that a simple re-soldering is not going to solve my problem. I did come across Ficmrepair.com earlier and he's been the least expensive and now that you've suggested him he'll probably get my business. Thanks for all the info.
