FICM removal and bolts question.

Whatsup fellas?
So I got some money together to get Ed at ficm repair to fix my ficm.
I pop the hood, remove the coolant lines from degas bottle, unbolt it and push aside, and what do I find?
My ficm is just sitting there, not a bolt one in the darn thing.
Then, I go to remove the plugs and pull her out,
I get the first one easy, but there others wont budge.

So my two questions are:

1. Any tips or tricks to remove those dadgum things?
2. To replace those bolts could I just run to a hardware store, or is Ford gonna make a pretty penny from me?

Clint.

Connectors have locks on both sides that must be pushed in to remove them from the FICM. Be gentle.

Best bet for bolts is Ford. They might be be more expensive, but you won't spend days trying to determine and locate the right size.

I went back out and the other two came off pretty easy. Now to get her shipped off, and get the bolts.
Yeah, I figured ford would probably be. The best bet. I reckon ill reroute the ccv while I'm in there.
Praying Ed does his magic, and makes my truck new again.

Just did this same thing last weekend, my FICM wasn't really attached by bolts, more studs sticking up with a tapered nut/washer type thing which held the FICM into place? not sure the technical term for the type of fastner, went pretty smooth. Getting things plugged back in was a bit more of a chore. Anyways the main reason I'm posting this is because you should have Ed do the ATLAS 40 while he's got your FICM, well worth the extra coin.

Well I planned on doing the Atlas 40 at the same time, but money is TIGHT right now.
If I had another vehicle I wouldn't even be getting this done.
I've been out of work for 4 months and as of yesterday the doc says it'll be atleast another 2 months.

You got studs? Didn't think it was recommend to run the atlas 80 without being studded.
